Arbor Day is a fun, educational event for the whole family and is an important piece to keeping Parker named as a “Tree City USA.” which Parker has been named as a Tree City USA for 19 years and order to keep this title the Town must keep a commitment to enhancing the public’s awareness for trees within the community through events and educational opportunities such as the annual Arbor Day celebration.

After the tree planting, be sure to stop by the Arborist table and meet the Town’s Park and Forestry team. They can help answer questions about tree planting, pruning and tree selection. Learn how to take care of your trees and make them last!

The Tree City USA®program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters.  The Town must also spend at least two dollars per resident on tree care such as planting and pruning.
