CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - With temperatures falling, the Virginia Department of Forestry is looking for your help.

In efforts to grow the next generation of trees, VDOF is asking Virginian’s to pick up acorns and drop them off at any of its locations until October 14.

VDOF will plant them at the Augusta nursery, where more than a dozen hardwood tree species get their start. This helps re-forest areas where many trees have been demolished.
