Wake Forest Arbor Day Celebration


This year Wake Forest is celebrating Arbor Day with an Arbor Day Expo and Tree Seedling Giveaway. The Arbor Day Expo and Tree Seedling Giveaway will get underway at 11am, while the Arbor Day ceremony is scheduled to begin at noon. As part of this year's Arbor Day celebration, the Urban Forestry Board (UFB), town staff and volunteers will distribute 800 tree seedlings, including buttonbush, American hornbeam, overcup oak, dogwood and Shantung maple. Limit one per person to area residents free of charge while they last. During the expo, local organizations will offer special activities, treats and information related to trees, gardening and related topics. In addition, expo attendees can learn about and sign up for the Wake Forest Tree Stewards Volunteer Program. Children will have the opportunity to participate in various art activities, including building their own bird house, and take part in a special raffle prize drawing just for kids. Finally, as part of the annual Arbor Day ceremony, town officials will accept Wake Forest’s 38th consecutive Tree City USA award and 3rd consecutive Tree Line USA award.
