Statesville Arbor Day Celebration

Join us for the 22nd Annual City of Statesville Arbor Day Celebration!

Join us for the 22nd Annual Arbor Day Celebration hosted by the Statesville Recreation & Parks Department! 🌳

📅 Saturday, April 20, 2024

🕙 10:00am - 2:00pm

📍 Statesville Park & Soccer Complex (2012 Simonton Rd)

The Arbor Day Celebration is a community event originally developed as a way for the City of Statesville to be designated as a Tree City USA, by the National Arbor Day Foundation. The Tree City USA is a program designed to help communities maintain and grow their tree cover. As part of the City of Statesville Arbor Day Celebration event, we giveaway free tree saplings in hopes that they will be planted around the community to maintain the beautification of our great City. Along with free tree saplings, event participants also receive literature and information on how to properly care and maintain their trees as they grow. In 2022, The City of Statesville commemorated 30 years as being recognized as a Tree City USA.

The Arbor Day Celebration event was also created and designed to celebrate the beautiful City of Statesville, bring the community together, educate children and the community about the importance of protecting our environment, and to highlight one of our most popular parks and greenways. 

Get ready for a day filled with fun and green initiatives! Here's what you can expect:

🌱 Tree Giveaways: Help us maintain and grow our city's tree cover by picking up a free tree sapling to plant in your community.
