Durham Arbor Day Celebration

Friday, March 15, 2019

Join the City of Durham General Services Department’s Urban Forestry Division, Keep Durham Beautiful, Durham Parks and Recreation, and the Durham Housing Authority to celebrate Arbor Day in Durham. This free event is open to the public. Learn about trees and tree care as well as to help beautify the neighborhood park. A reading of the Arbor Day Proclamation by Durham City Councilmember Javiera Caballero will take place at 10:30 a.m., and brief comments will also be made by a representative from the North Carolina Forest Service followed by a tree planting of 10 large ball-and-burlap trees. Volunteers will also meet at the corner of Sima and Ridgeway Avenues to help pick up litter and cut back invasive plants and vines in Burton Park to improve usability of the park and make it safer and more accessible.
