2019 Benicia Arbor Day Scheduled

January 30, 2019

As a Tree City USA, the City of Benicia has set April 27th as the date for the City's official Arbor Day Celebration.  Ten trees will be planted on Rose Drive beginning at 9 AM.  The Benicia Tree Foundation will assist the City by recruiting volunteers to help plant the trees.  Volunteers are asked to register prior to the event on the Benicia Tree Foundation website and to get further information on where to meet for the tree planting.  Tools, instructions, and refreshments will be provided.  

Holding an annual Arbor Day celebration is one requirement for receiving the Tree City USA designation from the National Arbor Day Foundation.  The City of Benicia first received its Tree City USA designation in 2010.  For further information on the April 27 tree planting event, please contact the Benicia Tree Foundation at 707-745-4546 or via email as info@beniciatrees.org.
