Arbor Day 2000: It’s a C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-I-O-N (AB-Style)

At Atlantic Beach’s 3½-hour Arbor Day celebration on Jan. 17, trees were planted in each of the City’s four districts – at Veterans Park, Jordan Park, Bull Park, and on Seminole Road -- and at Atlantic Beach’s welcome sign on Mayport Road. Each of the plantings, along with a heritage tree designation on Saturiba Drive and culminating flag-raising ceremony at the Police Department, were broadcast live on Facebook.

City beautification coordinator Brent McRoy offered tree-planting tips during the tree-planting events, which were coordinated by the Environmental Stewardship Committee and the City’s Planning and Community Development Department.

In Florida, Arbor Day is observed on the third Friday of each January. Atlantic Beach’s Arbor Day celebrations are carried out in connection with the City’s application to renew its Tree City USA designation, a recognition bestowed to communities that have programs in place to manage and expand their public trees. Tree City USA is a community-involvement program started in 1976 by the Arbor Day Foundation.
