The City of Yelm Tree Advisory Board will hold their 13th annual Yelm Arbor Day celebration at 11am Friday, April 30th in Yelm City Park (First St. & Mosman), per Mayor Harding’s Proclamation dated March 23, 2010.
Arbor Day is a nationally-celebrated observance that encourages tree planting and care.
Founded by J. Sterling Morton in Nebraska in 1872, National Arbor Day is celebrated each year on the last Friday in April.
Washington State’s Arbor Day is the second Wednesday in April.
“The National Arbor Day Foundation has published a new hardiness zone map, based on climate data from the past 15 years, that clearly shows the warming trend across the country,” quoting the National Arbor Day Foundation website.
