Celebrate Arbor Week 2015 in Edmond

EDMOND, Okla. –  Edmond’s Arbor Week Celebration is underway! It’s held on the last full week in March, and kicked off March 23rd.

There are several activities planned throughout the week in Edmond in celebration of the “tree planter’s holiday”.

This year, volunteers will plant trees at Edmond North High School at 215 W. Danforth Rd. on Saturday, March 28 beginning at 10 a.m.

Edmond citizens are invited to attend and participate in replenishing the urban forest, creating shade for Edmond’s youth, and beautifying the community.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own work gloves and shovels if available.

Stop by and see the young winners of the Edmond Arbor Day Art Contest that was held for 5th grade students. The artwork is being showcased in the “Arbor Day Art Show” at the Edmond Historical Museum (431 S. Boulevard) from March 14 through April 25.  Visitors can enter a raffle to win a tree.

The Urban Forestry Department encourages all Edmond residents to celebrate Oklahoma Arbor Week by planting trees at their homes for energy savings, beautification, erosion prevention, and wildlife habitat.

Forestry experts say the month of March is a great time to plant trees, while roots are growing but tree buds are still dormant.
