UNM celebrates Arbor Day with tree planting

"Over the past year, we've added more trees to campus, and this is especially noticeable in the recently reopened Hort Park, where additional work was completed in alignment with the Todd's Creek relocation".

The City Council this week recognized Arbor Day, which is Friday, by announcing this years's Heritage Trees, something the city does each year. The Village of Warwick is one of the oldest Tree City-designated communities in New York State.

Beginning a year ago, the city took steps to fulfill the designation's four requirements: having a tree care ordinance, a tree care budget of at least $2 per capita, a tree board and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.

To earn the titles of Tree Campus USA and Tree City USA, recipients must practice the five core standards such as establishing and maintaining a campus tree advisory committee, following a campus tree care plan, verifying dedicated annual expenditures for tree care, observing Arbor Day and instituting a service learning project with the student body or community.

The proclamation mentioned all the positive aspects of trees, from their the use as a renewable resource to the "joy and spiritual renewal" they bring to people.

The Public Works Department will be planting trees with the help of area Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts. Patricia Reinhardt, a member of the Warwick Valley Gardeners, will speak and Wadeson's Home Center will distribute trees to all of the children who attend.

9 a.m. - Emmett Belknap students have prepared an indoor garden and are planting four saplings. The tree planting will include speakers, followed by the planting of the 41 trees and shrubs.
