The Town of Warwick Tree Commission and the Warwick Valley Gardeners will hold an Arbor Day celebration at the Thomas P. Morahan Waterfront Park in Greenwood Lake on Fri., Apr. 27 at 11 a.m. Four London Plane trees and a Black Tupelo will be planted at the park in honor of Arbor Day.
The Shade Tree Commission will also announce its plans for a Memorial Tree program. The Commission is coordinating with the Town Parks Department to plant memorial and celebratory trees in Town parks. People can choose from a variety of trees, choose a park, and the Parks Department will plant and maintain the tree for a fee of $400.
In addition, a personalized tree tag will be created to recognize the donor and the person or event that is being commemorated. Tree applications are available at the Warwick Town Hall, the Town Parks Department or by calling Karen Emmerich, Shade Tree Commissioner, at 986-0151.
