Since 1972, when J. Sterling Morton proposed a day be set aside for the planting of trees – Arbor Day has been celebrated. The Sunnyvale Garden Club Arbor Day celebration will be on Thursday, April 17 at 10:00 am behind the Sunnyvale High School.
The tree is already planted – a Bur Oak. It was planted in December so it would have a good start on establishing roots before the heat of the summer. The Bur Oak can grow to 60’ tall and 45’ wide. It will shade the backside (East) of the school building in years to come.
Please come and celebrate the importance of trees in our lives – April 17, 10:00 am.
