It has been nearly 140 years since J. Sterling Morton declared the first Arbor Day to encourage tree planting and care in the month of April. Tree Davis is celebrating Arbor Day all month long with several activities.

On April 9, Tree Davis partnered with the City of Winters and the Sacramento Tree Foundation to plant 24 trees in the City of Winters’ Valley Oak Park, bringing our total tree plantings to 293 in the first three months of this year. Volunteers also have pruned and cared for an additional 189 trees in 2011.

Tree care activities will continue through the summer months as part of the new Urban Forestry Stewardship Program. For more information on this new program, email info@treedavis.org.

On Earth Day, April 22, Tree Davis will join the Davis Food Co-op from 4 to 6 p.m. to celebrate the Co-op’s new program called Save A Tree — Bring Your Own Bag. The Co-op will begin charging customers five cents for each paper bag used to encourage patrons to bring their own reusable shopping bags. All proceeds from this program will be donated to Tree Davis. During the event, Tree Davis will distribute copies of its new tree species selection and planting guide. The celebration also will include free reusable bags, cake and a commemorative tree planting at 5:30 p.m.

Tree Davis Arbor Day festivities will continue through May 1 with activities for the UC Davis Spring Weekend of Service. Volunteers will plant 10 sycamore trees on campus.

Community members can help celebrate Arbor Day by becoming a member of Tree Davis. Membership dues and donations help fund tree plantings, young tree care, educational programs and workshops. Donors who give $50 or more will receive a free Tree Davis tote bag. For more information about becoming a member, visit http://www.treedavis.org.

Together, we can continue to plant trees and build community as we keep Davis green, clean and cool.

— David Robinson is president of the Tree Davis board of directors.
