On Saturday, April 29, at 1:00 p.m. the Friends of the Tree Warden will present Groton’s 2017 Arbor Day celebration at the Fire Station on Farmers’ Row. The celebration will feature the planting of two European or common beech trees (Fagus sylvatica) on both sides of the driveway, as one enters the main parking lot. Also featured will be ukulele music from Groton Ukulele.
Enjoy the mid-spring day with the Friends of the Tree Warden, our friends at the fire station, and the Groton Garden Club, who co-funds the purchase of the trees. Take home a free American Sweetgum seedling, which is a fast-growing native tree with vibrant, glossy, star-shaped leaves, and brilliant fall color.
