The first Friday in November is set aside as Texas Arbor Day by the Arbor Day Foundation of America. In honor of Texas Arbor Day, Plano Parks & Recreation partnered with students, parents and faculty from Hedgcoxe Elementary School on Thursday, November 3 to plant a group of native saplings at Hoblitzelle Park.
The tree planting was coupled with a proclamation reading and remarks from department staff and a representative from the Texas A&M Forest Service. The day’s activities marked a celebration of all the ways in which Plano’s trees enrich our lives.
Texas Arbor Day provides an opportunity for parks and recreation staff across the state to interact with local residents and get children excited about trees and nature.
Trees are a renewable resource for our community. The preservation of the City’s green spaces is everyone's responsibility. Plano Parks & Recreation crews work every day to nurture, maintain and replenish our public tree population.
