Arbor Day Tree Celebration

April 1, 2014

This year, help support the maintainance and care of Prospect Park’s 30,000 trees by contributing to the commemorative Arbor Day Tree, which will be planted on April 25. All of the proceeds benefit the work of the Alliance’s Natural Resources Crew, a team of arborists, ecologists and turf specialists that care for the Park’s landscapes. A $100 contribution to the Arbor Day Tree includes a certificate of participation, honoring you or a loved one.

Now in its fifth year, the Arbor Day Tree planting ceremony brings supporters together to see the tree being placed into the ground. This year’s tree will be a beautiful red oak, hand-selected by the Natural Resources Crew. Christian Zimmerman, Vice President of Capital and Landscape Management, said, “With over 150 different species of trees, the Park requires the dedicated care provided by the Natural Resources Crew to manage its health and diversity. This would not be possible without the support of our donors.”

The Prospect Park Alliance Arbor Day Tree is just one way to support your Park through a commemorative gift. You can plant a sapling to welcome a new member of the family, honor a loved one with an individual tree, or memorialze an important anniversary with a dedicated bench. 

Don’t miss out this year. Contribute to the Arbor Day Tree today.
