There are more opportunities to celebrate trees with Arbor Day events around Phoenix.
There are a ton of people passionate about trees in our community. Arizona State University and Duke University have a partnership to plant trees, in order to purchase urban offsets. ADP, The City of Phoenix Urban Forestry, and Arizona State University teamed up to plant 41 trees, including some at Desert West Sports Complex.
A quick history lesson: Arbor Day is a holiday where instead of giving gifts, people are encouraged to plant trees. That’s pretty much the gist of it. Now go celebrate Mother Nature and plant a tree. Here are two events to encourage you more.
