Arbor Day Celebration ~ Friday, April 19, 2019

For the homeowner, Arbor Day is an excellent opportunity to take stock of the trees on your property and plan for the future. Inspect your trees noting any broken branches or evidence of disease or insect infestation. Think about how planting new trees might improve the look of your property or provide wind or heat protection.   The Borough strongly encourages the planting of native species adapted to the unique growing conditions on a coastal barrier island.

The Stone Harbor Shade Tree Committee has prepared a pamphlet which provides information on the importance of maintaining and replacing trees indigenous to our area.  The Borough has earned approval of the Community Forestry Management Plan, which sets goals for managing and maintaining the Borough’s tree resources.

As a Tree City USA community for 21 years, the Borough is a recognized leader in responsible stewardship of its trees.  Arbor Day is a perfect opportunity to recognize these accomplishments and remind residents and visitors alike of the importance of trees. By gifting trees to the elementary students the Borough aims to inspire future stewardship by the next generation.
