City of Brooksville to celebrate Arbor Day April 26

By Florida's Original NatureCoaster™ Posted on April 18, 2019

The City of Brooksville’s Beautification Board and City Council Members are excited to announce they will be hosting the 30th Annual Arbor Day Celebration on Friday, April 26, 2019.

Arbor Day was founded by J. Sterling Morton in 1872, its purpose… to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. Trees are assets to a community when properly planted and maintained. They help to improve the visual appeal of a neighborhood, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants and provide wildlife habitat, among many other benefits.

City of Brooksville celebrates Arbor Day April 26 with Activities

Members of City Council, the Beautification Board, City staff, and the students and faculty of the Hernando High School’s Project Looking Ahead program will participate in this year’s celebration. The event will be held at the Countryman Family One-Room School House located at 66 Russell Street, Brooksville, FL 34601 and will begin at 10:00 a.m.

In honor of National Arbor Day, Project Looking Ahead students are creating Arbor Day themed poster art which will be judged by the Beautification Board. All student participants will receive a participation certificate and there will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.

County Forester Kim Burch, from the Florida Forest Service, will be there to lead a discussion on “What is Arbor Day?” The celebration will conclude with students and City Staff, planting trees that have been generously donated by Stewart’s Tree Service. Planting these trees will improve the environment, provide shade and also beautify the area for the enjoyment of many generations to come.

Sponsors include Florida Forest Service, Stewart’s Tree Service, and Publix Super Markets, Inc.

Mark your calendars for the 30th Annual Arbor Day Celebration event which plays an important role in maintaining Brooksville’s Tree City USA status now held for 25 consecutive years!
