Arbor Day

Saturday, October 26, 2013

Arbor Day is a City of Allen Parks and Recreation Department event sponsored by Keep Allen Beautiful, the Allen Garden Club and Montgomery Farm Gardens. The event will feature demonstrations by certified arborists such as tree climbing, pruning, and general care of plants.

This year's Arbor Day activities include a short performance by the Allen Community Band as they play the National Anthem and few other songs. The girls scouts will have booths set up for children’s face painting and craft tables and “Oaky, the Talking Tree” will make an appearance. There will also be a live DJ, free tree saplings, a tree climbing demonstration by the Forestry staff, a Natural Wonders Exhibit, and, of course, lots of trees to plant!

Keep Allen Beautiful is sponsoring a tree sale and an Arbor Day tree dedication, with the tree being donated by Montgomery Farm Gardens.

For additional information regarding the tree sale, please look for the Trees for Allen flyer in your City of Allen October Utility Bill.
