WHY?
The Town will participate in Arbor Week (April 24-30) for the 15th consecutive year by planting trees at local elementary schools. Arbor Week is an international event celebrating trees and their benefits to the environment. Trees produce oxygen while also reducing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere which trap heat and gradually contribute to global warming. The newly planted trees will benefit present and future generations of students by helping to sustain and improve the environment.
