Arbor Day Celebration- Free Tree Seedling Distribution

Friday, April 27, 2018

In honor of Arbor Day on Friday April 27, the city of Northampton has planned activities to expand our tree canopy and increase education around the care for urban trees. In collaboration with the citizen volunteer organization Tree Northampton, the City will distribute free tree seedlings outside city hall, plant shade trees in front of the Daily Hampshire Gazette, and educate local landscape professionals about best practices for urban tree care. With volunteer support from Tree Northampton, the City will distribute 500 free tree whips in front of Northampton’s City Hall between 8am - 3pm on Friday April 27, and 8am - 12 noon on Saturday April 28. Northampton citizens may choose among four species-- Sugar Maple, Common Lilac, Red Oak, Sweet Gum, and Balsam Fir—and obtain instructions on how to plant their tree.
