Arbor Day Celebration

Categories: Parks & Forestry

The City of Sheboygan Public Works Department will be celebrating Arbor Day on April 30, 2021. Several families from Grant Elementary School’s Parent Teacher Organization will be helping the City’s Forestry Crew plant sugar maple trees. The goal is that when these sugar maples mature, they will contribute sap every year for the spring maple sugaring season. The City Forester will discuss and demonstrate proper transplanting procedures. This will allow the kids to give the new sugar maples their best start in their journey for growth and in the future, they can enjoy maple syrup made from the trees they planted.

This year the City of Sheboygan is celebrating 43 years of being designated as a “Tree City USA” by the Arbor Day Foundation – the longest-running in all of Wisconsin. Also new this year, the city is celebrating our first year as being designated a “Tree City of the World” by the Arbor Day Foundation. We are currently the only city in Wisconsin with this designation.

This is an outdoor event and is open to the public to join as spectators in-person following safe social distancing guidelines or they can join online via a live-stream option.

The event will be located at Maywood Park on Friday April 30, 2021 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. near the west side of the driveway across from the main parking lot area.
