Arbor Day Redbud Tree adds Beauty at OKCC

Posted on May 5, 2020

Montgomery celebrated a virtual Arbor Day this year because of the coronavirus. The Shade Tree Committee was unfortunately not able to hold its annual Arbor Day program for the third graders at the Village School or traditional public ceremony to celebrate the planting of a tree for Arbor Day in Montgomery.

However, thanks to the Parks staff of Public Works, an “Appalachian Red” redbud tree was planted at the Otto Kaufman Center to celebrate Arbor Day. It is the smaller tree in the foreground; in a few years it will hopefully look like its companion tree in the background.

The Shade Tree Committee would like to remind everyone that now is a great time to plant trees. Our local nurseries are all open for business and have lots of trees to choose from.

For guidance on choosing a tree and how to plant and mulch it, and other great tips, go to the Shade Tree Committee’s page (scroll down it for links to articles) at
