Livingston Arbor Day Celebration

Planting and watering tree

Livingston Loves Trees! A Tree City USA Affiliate has donated two beautiful boulevard trees and pollinator-friendly native plants for planting at the Lincoln School. Join them on Arbor Day, which is Friday, April 26th, from 1 to 3 pm, at 215 East Lewis Street for the planting ceremony.

Arbor Day—which literally translates to “tree” day, from the Latin word—is a holiday that celebrates the planting, upkeep and preservation of trees. It is all about ensuring our earth and the trees upon it are happy, healthy, and growing to be as strong as they possibly can be. They can’t talk, but no doubt the trees will thank you for keeping the planet clean and green!

It all began in 1872, when a man named J. Sterling Morton proposed to the Nebraska Board of Agriculture that a special day be set aside for the planting of trees. Many trees have been planted since then. On this holiday last year, more than one million trees were successfully planted in communities worldwide. This free community event is a great way to:

  • Celebrate Arbor Day and Livingston’s commitment to a greener, more resilient future.

  • Help plant trees and native plants to beautify Livingston’s boulevards, while we support and strengthen the ecosystem.

  • Learn tips for tree planting, the value of urban forests, and the importance of native plants for supporting trees and bees.

The upcoming, family-friendly event will take place in the Lincoln School parking lot. Refreshments will be served. Please dress appropriately, bring sunscreen or layers, and plan to get your hands dirty! Livingston Loves Trees and Bees—help us spread the love! For more information, please contact Bethany Allen, PCEC’s Wild Habitat Director, at (406) 333-1398.
