Fall Arbor Day Tree Planting & Giveaway

Post Date:11/02/2018 9:05 AM

Join us tomorrow, Saturday, November 3 th , as Keep Abilene Beautiful and the City of Abilene teams up to celebrate Fall Arbor Day out at Lake Kirby Park Pavilion. Beginning at 10 a.m., there will be a step-by-step tree planting demonstration followed by a giveaway of more than 50, three to five gallon trees (one per household and first come first served).

Have you ever wondered why we don’t plant trees in April on Arbor Day? Well, planting in the spring means the new tree will face some major challenges surviving the heat and drought of summer. Here in Abilene, we have found it’s best to wait until fall to plant a new tree.

This event is made possible by our partners: City of Abilene, My Parks & Recreation, Keep Abilene Beautiful, Abilene Christian University, American Electric Power, Lowe’s, Davey Tree Surgeons, J&N Construction.
For more information on this event, call Keep Abilene Beautiful at 325-734-3301.
