Once again, Put-in-Bay, Ohio, has been named a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of its commitment to the goals and principles of the Arbor Day Foundation.
Put-in-Bay achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program’s four requirements: a tree board, a tree-care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.
Put-in-Bay‘s Arbor Day Celebration will take place on Friday, April 27, 2017. 2018. The Council of the Village of Put-in-Bay has allocated funds for Arbor Day expenses. On Arbor Day, two bur oak trees will be planted in the Village Park. A bur oak is a hardy choice for island’s rocky, shoreline soil.
Also today a third tree, a chinquapin oak, will be planted in DeRivera Park by the Put-in-Bay Garden Club in memory of Danny French.
The Arbor Day Foundation is a million member nonprofit conservation and education organization whose mission is to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. Information is available at arborday.org.
