Arbor day celebration!

On Friday, April 25, the Wilmington Tree Commission celebrated National Arbor Day by planting a bald cypress near the south end of the bridge on the Gary Shell Cross-City Trail in Anne McCrary Park, off Randall Parkway.

Wilmington was recently named Tree City USA for the 11th consecutive year and has now received the prestigious Tree City USA Growth Award for 10 years. To become a Tree City USA, a community must have a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive community forestry program and an Arbor Day observance. The growth award recognizes environmental improvement and higher levels of tree care. 

The Wilmington Tree Commission is also seeking nominations for a heritage tree. Heritage trees are those, which because of their size, age, rarity, overall beauty, landmark or historical significance represent an important aspect of the city's history or natural landscape. The deadline for Heritage Trees nominations is April 30, 2014.
