City to celebrate Arbor Day April 30
On April 30, the City of Warren — a Tree City USA — will celebrate Arbor Day.
The celebration will feature this year’s Arbor Day Tree — an autumn blaze maple purchased by the Warren Garden Club, planted at 311 Market St.
The city, the club, and others will mark the event.
“Maurice Cashman, Mayor of Warren, will dedicate the tree, one of 45 trees planted in Warren this spring by Joe Reinke, City Arborist and Superintendent of Public Works,” according to a Garden Club release. “Cecile Stelter (Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Cornplanter District Ranger) will present the award of Tree City USA for 2021.”
The city has been designated a Tree City USA for 33 years.
“Arbor Day was established in 1872 to show respect and appreciation for our environment by planting a tree,” according to the release. “It is in this spirit that we invite Warren citizens, adults and children to join us at noon Friday, April 30, at 311 Market Street for Arbor Day as we plant this lovely tree for all to enjoy.”
COVID-19 guidelines will be observed and refreshments will be served by the Garden Club.
