The City of Norwalk Public Services Department Tree Maintenance Section maintains over 17,000 trees citywide. Activities, including the "I Love Trees Because" poster contest, celebrate the importance of trees.
Sixth Annual Arbor Day Celebration
The City’s sixth annual Arbor Day event was held on Saturday, April 27, 2019, from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. at Holifield Park. Approximately 40 volunteers, including members of League of United Latin American Citizens (L.U.L.A.C.), parishioners from The Walk Church, TAP participants, Public Safety Cadets, and residents helped Public Services staff plant a mix of 40 magnolia and pine trees in the park. Athens and West Coast Arborists (WCA) participated during the event by providing valuable information to attendees and Parks & Recreation staff helped with crafts for children. While onsite, WCA distributed flags to homeowners who pre-registered online as part of the C.I.R.C.L.E. 3.0 grant to receive FREE trees. Lastly, as part of the City’s Arbor Day celebration, students from Dolland Elementary participated in an “I Love Trees Because…” poster contest depicting the benefits of trees. Attendees to the event voted for the top four entries. The winners will be recognized at the June 4th City Council Meeting.
