City of Reno celebrates Arbor Day with tree planting in downtown park

Post Date:04/21/2014 1:17 PM
The City of Reno will celebrate Arbor Day during a free public event on Friday, April 25, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. The Reno Urban Forestry Commission and Nevada Division of Forestry will plant a honeylocust tree at Lunsford Park, located at the intersection of Riverside Drive and Washington Street across from the Truckee River.

The honeylocust was salvaged from the recent renovation of Dick Taylor Park and will be planted in the same spot where an old cottonwood tree once stood until it had to be removed in 2006. Lunsford Park is home to seven beautiful, mature trees from species as diverse as oak, maple, ash, Kentucky coffee and zelkova.

The City of Reno will again be recognized as a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation, marking 33 consecutive years that Reno has achieved the honor. Reno was the inaugural Tree City USA in the State of Nevada, which now claims 12 Tree Cities. The Arbor Day Foundation sponsors the Tree City USA program in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and National Association of State Foresters.
"Residents of Reno ought to be proud to live in a community that makes the planting and care of trees a priority," says John Rosenow, Chief Executive of the Arbor Day Foundation.

The City of Reno maintains more than 25,000 public trees along its streets and in and around more than 85 city parks and trails. For more information, visit Reno.gov or call 321-8373.
