Leave the shovels at home. Our parks are beautifully planted, so we are skipping the digging and instead, we are giving away seedling trees! There will be fun family activities with Douglas County Libraries, Arbor Day goodies and delicious pancakes. 
   
Be sure to stop by the arborist table and meet the Town’s Parks and Forestry team. They can answer questions about tree planting, pruning and tree selection. Learn how to take care of your trees and make them last.
  

Tree City


Arbor Day is a fun educational event for the whole family and is an important piece to keeping Parker named as a “Tree City USA.” The Tree City USA® program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters. Parker has been named as a Tree City USA for each of the last 22 years! In order to maintain this title, a commitment must be made to enhance the public’s awareness of trees within the community through events and educational opportunities such as the annual Arbor Day Celebration. The Town must also spend at least $2 per resident on tree care such as planting and pruning.
