City of Tracy Marks Arbor Day Celebration with Tree Planting Event

 

Tracy, Calif. – The City of Tracy, in partnership with the Tracy Tree Foundation (TTF), Tracy Unified School District (TUSD), Tracy United to Make a Difference and West Coast Arborists, Inc. (WCA) will host an Arbor Day celebration on Saturday, October 28th at 9:00 a.m. at Lincoln Park in Tracy.  The City, with the help of numerous volunteers will plant 150 trees in various City parks and local schools.  

 

Among those involved in the planting will be local dignitaries, TTF board members, Tracy’s Youth Advisory Commission members, TUSD staff and students, and volunteers organized through Tracy United to Make a Difference.  The City and its partners will be there to assist as needed.

 

“With this, our third Tracy Arbor Day celebration, we hope to continue the momentum built over the past two years.  This is the first planting event funded through recently awarded CAL FIRE and California Climate Investments - Urban & Community Forestry California Climate Investment Grant.  This day of service promises to be a rewarding experience for all involved.  Arbor Day is a great opportunity to raise awareness and support for a healthy urban forest in Tracy. Trees provide many environmental, health  and social benefits, all of which contribute to improving the quality of life in our community,” stated Don Scholl, Public Works Director.

 

Arbor Day is typically celebrated nationally during the spring; however, any community can designate a different time of year to celebrate this event.  The City has chosen the month of October to celebrate Arbor Day as the fall weather and winter rains provide the best time of year to establish new trees in Tracy’s climate.

 

Volunteers are encouraged to wear work clothes and gloves, and to bring shovels, rakes, and wheelbarrows if they can.  Residents interested in participating in the Arbor Day event may contact the Public Works Department at (209) 831-6300 or publicworks@cityoftracy.org for more information.
