Each spring we continue the national tradition of celebrating the importance of trees with our Arbor Day Celebration in downtown Cary. A tree dedication ceremony opens the event, after which guests can enjoy free tree-themed crafts for kids, education, and entertainment. The event is free with local food and drink available for purchase. While supplies last, attendees can pick up a free tree to plant at home and enjoy time for Q&A with our certified arborist including tips for proper planting. Additional booths will be onsite representing other local environmentally focused groups.
This year we are celebrating our our 36th year as a Tree City USA Community, a designation that we are awarded based on our investment in the management of our urban forests.
The Arbor Day foundation is the world’s largest tree-planting organization and in our community we offer citizens the opportunity to plant trees, and perform other environmental service, through our Spruce program. Since the Spruce program first began in 2009, our volunteers have planted over 10,000 trees, shrubs and plants in our community.
