We celebrated the 39th annual Arbor Day with students, parents, teachers, City of Greenville officials, representatives from Trees Upstate, The Native Plant Society, Greenville Tree Foundation, Keep Greenville Green, the School District of Greenville County and Schneider Tree Care.
Because of COVID the event was held over 2 days for more social distancing. Third grade students across the county usually participate in a classroom presentation of the Urban Forestry program that focuses on the value of trees in our urban communities. There was no “contest” this year but all poster entries were displayed and participants received a certificate as a “Tree Supporter” and a small gift. This was a “Thank You ” to the schools who had entered our contest last year but could not hold the event because of the lock down.This educational event is important to our mission and to the City of Greenville as a member of Tree City, USA for the last 39 years.
