TRACY TO CELEBRATE ARBOR DAY WITH WEEKLONG TREE PLANTING EVENT

Seeking Volunteers to Register to Help Plant Trees October 12-16

Posted: Oct 3, 2020
Location: Tracy, Calif.

 In partnership with CAL FIRE through their California Climate Investments - Urban & Community Forestry California Climate Investment Grant, the City of Tracy will host their fifth Annual Arbor Day celebration during the week of October 12 through October 16.   As in the past, the City is seeking the help of volunteers to join in helping plant approximately 75 trees along the west side of MacArthur Drive, south of Grant Line Road.   In an effort to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and comply with the guidelines set forth by public health officials, groups of up to ten people may register for a time to help plant trees together while practicing safe social distancing and wearing face coverings, as recommended.

 

Arbor Day is typically celebrated nationally during the spring; however, many communities celebrate Arbor Day at other times based on their climate and the best time to plant trees.  The City of Tracy celebrates Arbor Day in October, as the fall weather and winter rains make this an ideal time of year to establish new trees.

 

“As part of the ongoing efforts between the City of Tracy, their partners and our extraordinary community volunteer groups, this Arbor celebration will continue the tradition of planting trees to help both the environment and aid in further beautification efforts here in Tracy,” said Public Works Superintendent/City Arborist David Murphy.  “With the many challenges we are all facing as we adjust to this ‘new normal,’ we are excited for this opportunity to maintain the momentum of the past four years and once again, demonstrate that we are ‘Tracy Strong.’”

 

Volunteers are encouraged to wear personal protective equipment including masks, work clothes and gloves.  If possible, volunteers should also bring shovels, rakes, wheelbarrows and water bottles.  Residents interested in participating in the Arbor Day event may contact the Public Works Department at (209) 831-6300 to sign up or to receive more information.
