The purpose of Arbor Day is to encourage individuals and groups to plant and care for trees. In North Carolina, Arbor Day is always celebrated on the first Friday after March 15 while nationally, it is celebrated on the last Friday of April.
This year, the town will recognize Arbor Day on March 19, 2022 with a ceremony and tree planting at Plum Creek Park, beginning at 9:00 a.m.
We encourage you to observe Arbor Day by getting outside and enjoying nature! Learn to identify the trees around you, understand invasive species, clean up litter, and/or volunteer for TreesDavidson. Are you planting a tree? Be sure to choose a species native to NC, consider what is the right tree for the right space (Gary Thacker, Town of Davidson arborist can help with that!), and always call 811 before you dig!
Arbor Day recognizes the benefits that trees give to the community. Read about Davidson's tree canopy HERE.
