Young, native deciduous trees will be supplied by the city’s tree nursery.

The nursery was planted as part of the Arbor Day Foundation Tree City USA program to sustain green spaces throughout the city.

Trees are free to anyone who would like one planted within the City right-of-way on their property.

To have a tree planted, call the Parks Department, 592-2474.

If you’d like to volunteer to plant trees on April 23, after a brief professional demonstration, email [email protected]
