APPOMATTOX, Va. (AP) -- Appomattox is being recognized for its efforts to care for trees.

The National Arbor Day Foundation has designated Appomattox as a Tree City USA. The national program recognizes and promotes communities that take special steps to care for trees.

Barbara White with the Virginia Department of Forestry tells The News & Advance (http://bit.ly/112GeUH ) that the designation makes the town eligible for certain grants and gives it more favor for grants open to everyone.

White says there are 56 Tree City USAs in Virginia.
