Town Supervisor Chris
Burdick, the Town Board, the Recreation and Parks Department, Bedford Tree
Advisory Board Chairman Michael Serio and members of the Tree Advisory Board
(TAB) invite Town residents to join in celebrating Arbor Day 2014 with a tree
planting ceremony on Saturday, April 26th, 9:00AM at the Bedford Hills
Memorial Park. Please join us for this special event.
On behalf of the Town Board, Supervisor Burdick will read the
annual Town of Bedford Arbor Day
proclamation. And, on behalf of the
National Arbor Day Foundation, if scheduling allows, a representative of the
NYS DEC will be presenting the “Tree City USA” designation award to the Town of Bedford. This honor is
presented in recognition of the ongoing tree care and tree plantings the Town
of Bedford has performed during the past year.
This is the 14th year Bedford has been
designated as a “Tree City USA”.
The “Tree City
USA” honor is bestowed on
communities that have met four qualification standards. They include having a
Tree Board or Department, a tree care ordinance, a comprehensive forestry
program and an annual Arbor Day observance and official proclamation. The Town
Board is very pleased that the Tree Advisory Board’s ongoing work with the
National Arbor Day Foundation has secured this wonderful designation for the
Town of Bedford and appreciates the role the TAB serves in working with the Town
Board in preserving, protecting, maintaining existing Town owned trees and the
planting of trees in Bedford.
We wish to thank Yonkers Excavating for graciously donating two trees to be
used for the Arbor Day celebration.
