Tree City USA Award
In conjunction with the Earth Arbor Day celebrations, the City will be celebrating its 29th Annual Arbor Day. During the celebration the City will be recognized by the National Arbor Day Foundation and receive its 29th consecutive Tree City USA award. The Tree City USA program is conducted by the National Arbor Day Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters. The awards program is designed to recognize communities that effectively manage their public tree resources, and to encourage the implementation of community tree management.
This year’s event will offer 1000 free trees to the public and free bags of mulch (while supplies last). In addition there will be volunteer tree planting opportunities for all ages. Ten new trees will be planted throughout Central Park. This is an opportunity for community members to help plant trees to offset the effects of global warming and to improve our air quality.
