Spring 2017 Dexter Street Tree Resident Cost-Sharing Program - DEADLINE EXTENDED ORDER NOW
Dexter’s Arbor Day Celebration Scheduled for April 28, 2017
On April 10, 2017 the Dexter City Council proclaimed April 28, 2017 Arbor Day within the City of Dexter. An Arbor Day Celebration will be held to celebrate the benefits of trees, including how trees can reduce erosion of topsoil by wind and water, cut heating and cooling costs, moderate the temperature, clean the air, produce life-giving oxygen, and provide habitat for wildlife.
Trees are also beneficial because they are a renewable resource giving us paper, wood for our homes, fuel for our fires, and help beautify and give our community character. The community will be asked to participate in the celebration and to plant trees throughout the City and on your property to promote the well-being of this and future generations.
Volunteers will be distributing free seedlings to celebrate Arbor Day, at the following times and locations:
- 10:00 am - noon Dexter Area District Library (3255 Alpine Street)
- 1:00 -3:00 pm Dexter Mill (3515 Central St)
- 11:00 am – noon Clock Plaza (corner of Broad & Main Streets; weather permitting)
On April 11, 2017, the City of Dexter was one of 111 Michigan communities recognized for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and the Arbor Day Foundation for its community forestry efforts.
The City of Dexter has been a proud Tree City USA member since 2008. Tree City USA is a nationwide Arbor Day Foundation program that promotes proper tree care and management in urban areas and calls attention to the economic health and aesthetic benefits trees offer.
