Celebrating Trees

National Arbor Day 2023 Photos - Click Here.

National Arbor Day, an annual observance that celebrates the role of trees in our lives and promotes tree planting and care, is being celebrated at Memorial School on April 28th this year. The first Arbor Day in 1872 was celebrated with the planting of more than a million trees in Nebraska. Arbor Day is now observed throughout the world, including here in Manchester!


Every spring , Friends of Manchester Trees has requested our Select Board to proclaim Arbor Day in Manchester. We also sponsor special events, which includes planting a tree with the fifth graders at Memorial School. ​


Arbor Day celebrations draw attention to the benefits of trees. Trees reduce soil erosion caused by wind and water, cut heating and cooling costs, moderate land and water temperatures, clean the air, produce life-giving oxygen, provide wildlife habitat, increase property values, and add beauty to the community.
