Greeley Invites Community to Celebrate Arbor Day at Broadview Park
Celebrate Arbor Day with a tree-planting ceremony as a part of the City of Greeley’s festivities.
The free, family-friendly event takes place from 9-10 a.m. April 30, at Broadview Park—located northwest of 28th Avenue and 6th Street. The celebration includes a tree-planting ceremony and a tree giveaway—open to Greeley residents.
City officials invite the community to join in the 150th-anniversary celebration of Arbor Day. For 42 consecutive years, the National Arbor Day Foundation has recognized Greeley with a Tree City USA designation. The designation demonstrates Greeley’s commitment to its tree infrastructure. The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters.
Trees are assets to a community when properly planted and maintained. They help improve the visual appeal of a neighborhood, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants, and provide wildlife habitat among many other benefits.
