DALY CITY CELEBRATES ARBOR DAY

Daly City – Students will plant flowering trees alongside the newly-built Lincoln Community Center this Friday, April 25th, as part of Daly City’s 10th annual observance of Arbor Day, a national day to promote the value of trees in urban settings.

Starting at 10:30 a.m., at the corner of Winchester and Acton Streets, the 4th grade class of Washington Elementary School and the Wilderness Class from Jefferson Union High School District will work on this year’s goal to plant 15 flowering crab apple trees. The City of Daly City Parks and Recreation department personnel will be on-site to assist in the completion of the community project.

For the 10th consecutive year, Daly City has received the TreeCity USA award, a distinction given by the National Arbor Day Foundation to participating towns and communities nationwide who dedicate a high level of local resources to improving their urban forests. Arbor Day is observed in conjunction with Earth Week, celebrated this year from April 22nd thru April 28th.
