Arbor Day Festivities Set For Boca Raton

BOCA RATON, FL ( — The City of Boca Raton will be hosting its 36th annual Arbor Day Tree Planting Celebration at University Woodlands Park located at 2501 Saint Andrews Boulevard on Monday, November 16th at 10 o’clock in the morning.

All citizens are invited to attend this free event which recognizes and celebrates the importance of trees to our quality of life. According to Dawn Sinka, the City’s Horticulturalist/Arborist, 22 slash pines will be planted on the grounds of University Woodlands Park.

“The species of trees are chosen based upon what is found at the park naturally, how much space is available for the mature canopy, and the end result of how we envision the park in the future.” Lake Wyman Park was the recipient of the Arbor Day plantings in 2014 which also featured slash pines. “The size of the trees at planting is based on ease of planting for the children and staff involved,” said Sinka.

The children of the City’s GAP Camp Program will be participating in the festivities and assisting in the planting of the new pine trees at the park. “Palm Beach County Schools are not in session on Monday, November 16, and the City’s Gap Camp is open, so this Arbor Day Celebration is a great educational, hands on field trip for our children, said Jessica Godoy, Youth Program Director.

“They get to tag the trees they plant and can come back to check on their progress as they grow.” Boca Raton was selected as a Tree City in 2015 for the 35th consecutive year, and Mayor Susan Haynie will be accepting the Tree City USA award during the event.
