Did you know that Mesa has been named a Tree City USA community by the Arbor Day Foundation for the second consecutive year?
The first official Arbor Day was created by J. Sterling Morton and celebrated in Nebraska in 1872. In the years following that first Arbor Day, Morton's idea spread beyond Nebraska and today all 50 states celebrate Arbor Day.
Arbor Day 2012 is Friday, April 27th. Check out your landscape and decide where a tree should be. Then use this Tree Planting and Tree Care Guide from the City of Mesa.
