Home and GardenFrom a Press Release

The Division of Forestry invites Alaskans to join Arbor Day celebrations throughout Alaska, starting tomorrow and continuing through next week.

Governor Walker has proclaimed Monday, May 15 as Arbor Day, and communities across the state are hosting local events to promote tree planting and community forestry. Trees create healthy cities by reducing air and water pollution, reducing runoff and flooding, absorbing emissions that cause climate change, and supporting retail activity. For a list of Arbor Day events in Alaska, visit the Division of Forestry Community Forestry Program’s website at http://forestry.alaska.gov/community/news.

The national Arbor Day Foundation recently recognized four Alaska communities, three military bases, three utilities and one university for their efforts to protect and enhance community forests.
