The goal of the California Arbor Week Tour project is to help celebrate the trees of California, specifically the trees located in the Sacramento/Bay Area, and to bring awareness and educate the public on the value of arboriculture. This event includes a tour of intriguing TreeCircus shows and Arbor Day celebrations and activities.
Through several community partnerships with Western Chapter ISA, California ReLeaf, Sacramento Tree Foundation, Canopy, and the Luther Burbank Home and Experimental Farm, Californians across the 11 city tour was inspired by and reacquainted with the Urban Forest in which they live.
Arbor Day is a day for schools, civil clubs, organizations, and individuals to reflect on the importance of trees across the nation. Every tree planted on Arbor Day helps clean your air and water, beautify your neighborhood, provide homes for animals, conserves energy, and prevents soil erosion. Arbor Day gives everyone a chance to learn more about trees and the environmental, social and economic health benefits they provide. This year, plant a tree and make a difference for the generations to come.
