What does it take to make sure that trees thrive in Davis? Tree lovers of all ages are encouraged to join the City of Davis, Tree Davis, the Davis Manor Neighborhood Association and Creative Action Team for an Arbor Day Tree Planting and Festival on April 6th, 2024. The day will kick off with a community tree planting throughout the neighborhood. We’ll be planting nearly 30 trees in front of neighbors’ homes with volunteers and staff from City of Davis and Tree Davis followed by a festival at N Street Park. At the festival, there will be exhibitors from the UC Davis Arboretum, Cool Davis, City of Davis and Tree Davis to share how everyone can improve our urban forest to ensure our city is healthy and green. There will be activities for youngsters, and there will be talks, tours, and demonstrations to show what it takes to plant and care for trees in Davis. Drop in anytime to this FREE event!
