Plant A Tree For Arbor Day
By Phran Novelli
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Arbor Day is Friday a good reminder to plant a tree or three this year – and help meet the goal to plant ONE MILLION trees in our region.
All week long, the Morris Arboretum in Chestnut Hill has events for Arbor Day, and wandering their 92 acres is a great way to consider trees you might want to plant at your house – since you can see what they look like all grown up.
Celebrations culminate Saturday, from 11 am to 3pm with stations throughout the Morris Arboretum where you can learn to design a tree house, identify trees, write a tree’s history, plan an urban treescape, and watch arborists work. All visitors are welcome to these events and it’s also a way for Girl Scouts to earn their “Tree” badge that day.
And if you like the idea of being high up in the trees without doing any climbing, go ‘Out On A Limb’ at the Morris Arboretum to celebrate Arbor Day – their canopy walkway takes you 50 feet up into the treetops for a bird’s eye view.
