Arbor Day Celebration 2013
The City of Burlington and New Leaf Society celebrated National Arbor Day on April 20th, 2013.
The City and New Leaf held a public event at Fairchild Park on Graham-Hopedale Road to honor Burlington’s Tree City USA award and Arbor Day 2013. For 19 years Burlington has been named Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. A representative from the North Carolina Forest Service spoke and the Tree City USA award was accepted by Jeff Parsons, the City’s Grounds Division Superintendent. This was followed by a tree planting demonstration sponsored by the New Leaf Society. Yoshino Cherry seedlings were given away.
Thank you to Jeff, Arbor Day Foundation, the City of Burlington, and everyone who attended the event!
