Arbor Day, April 27, is excellent time to give trees extra TLC

Arbor Day, April 27, is excellent time to give trees extra TLC”

The first American Arbor Day took place in 1872, when an estimated one million trees were planted in Nebraska alone.

Heritage trees were spotlighted at Piedmont's annual Arbor Day celebration held April 19 at the city's community center. This year, the city has already started making rounds for tree maintenance.

Tree City USA is a nationwide movement that provides the framework necessary for communities to manage their public trees. There will be 1,000 trees up for grabs, with a limit of one per family.

"It is nice to see the horticulture and forestry faculty, students and college horticulturalists come together to develop a plan to celebrate trees and all they have to offer", said Justin W. Beishline, assistant dean of transportation and natural resources technologies.

Irving Street was selected for the Arbor Day planting location based on community need and support by neighborhood homeowners for trees and shrubs in their yards.

Students and staff planted more trees during a ceremony on the Rose campus. It's Arbor Day, which has been celebrated in IN since 1884.

Cory Walters, 434th Civil Engineer Squadron environmental flight chief, shops for trees at a local nursery in Miami County on April 5, 2018.

".It's been a long-running educational sharing program between the DNR and fourth grade teachers to get the word out about tree planting and getting seedlings". The organization has more than 50 offices strategically located across the United States to provide superior service.

Unlike other holidays, Arbor Day is unique in that it began here and spread to more than two dozen other countries around the world. Fruit- and nut-bearing trees can be food sources. "It's important not only to replant trees we've lost, but also protect the trees we have". They play a more significant role in your day-to-day life than you might imagine.

To round out the Arbor Day celebration, Bucknell University botany professor Chris Martine led a tree walk around the park. The City of Albany has been designated as Tree City U.S.A. for 16 years.

City Planner Michael DeMarco said there's good reason for picking that type of tree.
