Students at Lowell Elementary School will help the City honor Arbor Day with a tree-planting ceremony and celebration of trees this Friday, April 26, 2019. The community is invited to join the City’s Forestry Division and Wheaton Environmental Improvement Commission at 10 a.m. Friday in planting a tree at Lowell Elementary School, 312 S President Street. 

The City will also celebrate being named a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. Wheaton has received this award each year since 1986 in honor of its commitment to effective urban forest management.

“Wheaton’s Arbor Day celebration has become a community tradition that the Forestry Division looks forward to each year,” said City of Wheaton Forestry Superintendent Kevin Maloney. “It’s an opportunity to educate our younger residents about the importance of trees in a community, and by helping plant a tree at their school, students see how their actions will benefit others for decades to come.”
