Arbor Day

Arbor Day is coming up. According to the National Arbor Day Foundation, National Arbor Day is the last Friday in April, but many states observe it on different dates according to their best tree-planting times. Colorado’s date is the third Friday in April.

Celebrations in Colorado take place the entire week especially in the Denver area. If you would like to celebrate by planting a tree, our library has many resources to help select an appropriate tree. A search of “trees” in our online catalog turns up 125 items covering such varieties as evergreen, deciduous, mountain trees, natives; topics such as how to plant trees; xeriscaping; pests, diseases, and more. Most of these resources are from the Colorado State University Cooperative Extension.
