Shaw Air Force Base Deepens its Roots on Arbor Day

From left, U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Jimmy Oxendine, 20th Civil Engineer Squadron (CES) commander, Chief Master Sgt. Christopher Griste, 20th Fighter Wing command chief, retired Army Lt. Col. Everett Sharpe, South Carolina Forestry Commission (SCFC) community staff forester, Col. Kristoffer Smith, 20th FW commander, Bryan Jobe, 20th CES biological scientist, and Ann Huyler, SCFC Pee Dee Region urban forestry specialist, pose for a picture with a ‘Tree City USA’ flag at Shaw Air Force Base, S.C., Dec. 1, 2023. Shaw AFB qualifies as part of Tree City USA by maintaining a tree board, a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry, and celebrating Arbor Day. Being deemed a ‘Tree City’ demonstrates Shaw AFB’s commitment to environmental protection and reducing its environmental impact on natural habitats and the community.
