Celebration of Trees – Annual Arbor Day Event

Saturday, May 14, 10 a.m. to Noon at the Maplewood Nature Center

From Maplewood back yards to tropical rain forests, trees around the world are hard at work providing the necessities of life. Trees clean our air and water, pull carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, provide habitat for wildlife, connect communities, and support our health and well-being.  Come celebrate trees and learn how to preserve and protect them at the City’s annual Arbor Day Event!  

A fun filled morning to include: 

  • Tree Trek hike courtesy of the Friends of Maplewood Nature
  • Get a bird's eye view of the trees from the Fire Department bucket truck!
  • Tools of the trade (tree care tools and equipment)
  • Tree identification and planting instructions, including information on climate resilient trees for our area and a drawing for a free tree (winner must be a Maplewood resident)
  • Craft station
  • Snack station
  • Photo stations: Tree City USA Banner and scattered selfie stations

We can't wait for you to join us!
