Arbor Day Event Set for April 27 at Wilson Park

Posted on April 9, 2018


Arbor Day 2017 Dozens of local children, including those from area Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, will join local leaders in celebrating Arbor Day at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, April 27, at Wilson Park.

 

The children will help plant a Pawpaw tree while Mayor Jeff Sanner reads a proclamation. The mayor and children will be joined by other City Council members and City Beautiful Commission members. Children will earn a tree planting patch for their participation.

 

The City of West Carrollton will earn its 29th certificate as a Tree City USA member during a ceremony on Friday, April 20, in Miamisburg, Ohio. Participation in the Tree City USA program requires that the city performs tree care programs, enacts a community tree ordinance, funds a community forestry program; and celebrates Arbor Day with a community ceremony.

 

The city has planted approximately 30 trees, in a variety of species at Wilson Park, during the past 10 years, to replace those destroyed by Emerald Ash borer infestation.
