Arbor Day Celebrated in Bowling Green

For the 13th year, Bowling Green has been named a "Tree City USA" by the National Arbor Day Foundation.

Bowling Green received the honor for its commitment to community forest.

To celebrate the title the city held their annual Arbor Day celebration Saturday morning at Kereiakes Park.

Those with the event wanted to show the community that trees are important.

"Trees are not to be taken for granted. They are very important to us from an inspirational point of view as well as the obvious practical aspects of shade and windbreaking", says Elinor Markel, President of the Bowling Green Tree Advisory Board.

Members of the community were able to come out and see tree planting demonstrations, and even got free trees.
