Since 2002, Lone Tree has had the tradition of planting trees on Arbor Day. Why? Lone Tree is part of a nationwide program called Tree City USA, which promotes beatifying communities by planting more greenery. And Lone Tree needs it, since its climate is arid dessert like and trees would not grow under normal circumstances.
Residents can purchase their tree online at discounted prices by May 6 and pick them up on June 5 at their local nursery. And don’t worry, those trees won’t die. The nurseries have selected trees that will do well in the warm, dry climate. We’re hoping this tradition will carry on for many years to keep Lone Tree green!
