White Township marks Arbor Day

White Township Supervisors Sandi Gillette and George Lenz planted white oak seedlings near the Max Dog Park in Getty Heights Park in observance of Arbor Day.

Getty Heights is the third largest of the township’s public parks. In all, White Township cares for well over 250 acres of forested land for area residents’ relaxation and recreation.

Arbor Day has been observed on the last Friday of April for 150 years. From backyards to tropical rain forests, trees around the world are hard at work providing the necessities of life. Trees clean our air and water, provide habitat for wildlife, connect communities, and support our health and well-being. Learn more at the Arbor Day Foundation website.
