Every year, the City celebrates Arbor Day by planting trees in the City. During the event, the City receives its annual Tree City USA designation.
On Friday, April 29, 2022 at 2pm at 4601 Calvert Road, the City will celebrate Arbor Day. Two native trees will be planted on the south side of the building. All are welcome to attend.
On Friday, April 30, 2021 at 6:30 p.m., City celebrated Arbor Day by planting an evergreen tree in James Adams Park in Lakeland. The evergreen will function as a gathering place for the Lakeland comunity during the holiday season.
The park was named in honor of long-time resident James Adams. Mr. Adams was an active member of the community, an avid gardener, and enthusiastic supporter of environmental issues. The park was officially dedicated as James Adams Park with a ribbon cutting ceremony in 1996.
Thank you to Mrs. Adams and her family, the Lakeland Civic Association, the City's Tree and Landscape Board, and everyone who joined us during our Arbor Day celebration.
Past events have included planting trees at Paint Branch elementary school and with the College Park Nursery School at St. Andrew’s Church. The event is held every April and information can be found on the City calendar or the City’s event page.
