For the 27th consecutive year, Camden is a Tree City U.S.A., so named by the S.C. Forestry Commission (SCFC) and Arbor Day Foundation. Camden Urban Forester Liz Gilland introduced Lois Edwards, SCFC’s Pee Dee Urban Forester, who presented the award to Camden City Council and the Camden Parks and Trees Commission during council’s regular Sept. 23 meeting. “You all, the council, give the directions to the staff and also appropriate the budget to carry out the work of the management of the trees, the urban forest, in Camden,” Edwards said.
