Plant a Tree

News Staff's picture

Tomorrow, April 26, is Arbor Day, and township officials will again recognize the holiday by planting a tree, specifically a weeping cherry tree, near the gazebo at the Oval in the morning.

On Arbor Day, people are encouraged to plant trees. The tradition dates back centuries, though the first United States Arbor Day was held in 1872 in Nebraska; one million trees were reportedly planted that day. It has since grown to become a nationally observed holiday with millions of trees expected to be planted nationwide (and many more worldwide) each year.
