Milton To Celebrate Arbor Day With Tree Planting At Bell Memorial Park

4 p.m. TODAY!

On Friday, April 25, the City of Milton will recognize National Arbor Day with a special tree planting event. The ceremony, which will begin at 4 p.m. at Bell Memorial Park, will include the planting of a "Princeton' American Elm tree donated by Tommy Nobis, Jr. of Buck Jones and Associates.

The Princeton American Elm is a wonderful shade tree with large, leathery foliage that turns yellow in the Fall. The hardy tree can grow three to six feet a year during its early development, and can eventually reach 80 to 100 feet in height. Princeton American Elm trees were selected by the National Park Service to line all three blocks of Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House.

Who: Milton City Council Members, Citizens and Students
What: Tree Planting in recognition of National Arbor Day
Where: Bell Memorial Park, between the playground and
the Pavilion
When: Today, Friday, April 25 at 4:00 p.m.
