Arbor Day

Today is Arbor Day – the nationally-celebrated observance that encourages tree planting and care. Founded by J. Sterling Morton in 1872, it’s celebrated on the last Friday in April.

For the homeowners, Arbor Day is an excellent opportunity to take stock of the trees on your property and plan for the future. Inspect your trees. Note any broken branches or evidence of disease or insect infestation. Think about how planting new trees might improve the look of your property or provide wind or heat protection

The City of College Park’s Arbor Day celebration will take place tomorrow at 9:30 am at Branchville Vol. Fire Dept.  A dozen trees are scheduled for planting.  The fire dept. will be providing morning snacks and a bbq after the program.  Please consider attending, if you are available.
