The City of Gardendale, joined by representatives from the Alabama Forestry Commission, will celebrate Arbor Day next Tuesday, February 22nd by planting trees at Bragg Middle School. Tree planting begins at 10am.
According to Bill Casaday, who serves on Mayor Hogeland’s staff, students from two classes at Bragg Middle School will participate and will learn how to plant trees and their importance to the environment.
Holding an Arbor Day event each year is part of the requirements the City of Gardendale must meet to continue to be recognized as a Tree City by the Arbor Day Foundation.
The trees will be planted out in front of the school in the area near the school sign.
