Each year, the Recreation Department, in conjunction with Tree City USA, gathers together with local community members for a special tree planting ceremony to celebrate Arbor Day! This year's tree planting will be on Friday, April 24th at 12 pm. Location - Riverside Park and you can watch the VIRTUAL celebration here!
The City of Lebanon has been a member of Tree City USA since 2004. The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters.
Trees are assets to our community when properly planted and maintained. They help improve the visual appeal of our neighborhoods, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants and provide wildlife habitat, among many other benefits.
Thank you to all those who help make our participation in this program possible!
"He who plants a tree plants a hope."
