An early celebration of North Carolina Arbor Dav at the Davidson Farmer’s Market paired people with trees suited for their yards.  Thanks to the support of our generous corporate partner Bartlett Tree Experts, healthy, tree seedlings were handed out to interested residents.

Each state in the US has its own Arbor Day date to reflect the differing times of year suitable for planting.   Started in 1874, the Arbor Day holiday marks the day communities around the globe gather to celebrate trees and plant for a greener tomorrow.  This year NC Arbor Day is March 18 and our celebration will continue to a major community-wide tree planting near Plum Creek Park on March 19.  Davidson Lands Conservancy promotes trees and urban forestry in Davidson through its TreesDavidson programs.
