[ARCHIVED] Join Us for an Outdoor Arbor Day Celebration

Arbor-Day-Social-Media

JOIN US FOR A FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4, ARBOR DAY CELEBRATION

The Driftwood Garden Club invites you to participate in a Friday, December 4, 10:30 a.m. Arbor Day celebration at 40 Highway 17 South (site of the City's large electronic digital sign at the corner of Hwy 17 and Robert Edge Parkway). Park for free in the adjacent former Hardees parking lot.

Please wear a face-covering. There is room for social distancing as well.

The Club will offer commentary on the purpose of Arbor Day and the importance of trees, and Mayor Marilyn Hatley will present a Proclamation in support of Arbor Day in North Myrtle Beach.

Arbor Day can be traced back to 1872 when J. Sterling Morton proposed to the Nebraska Board of Agriculture that a special day be set aside for the planting of trees. This was called Arbor Day, and the day was observed with the planting of more than one million trees in that state.

Trees reduce erosion of topsoil by wind and water, cut heating and cooling costs, moderate the temperature, clean the air, produce oxygen, and provide wildlife with habitat.

Trees are a renewable resource giving us paper, wood for our home, fuel for our fires, and countless other wood products.

Trees in North Myrtle Beach can increase property values, enhance the economic vitality of business areas, and beautify the community.

Community forests also offer some protection to life and property from damage caused by low-category hurricanes and tropical storms.

Trees, wherever they are planted, are a source of joy and spiritual renewal.
