PROCLAMATION from Fred Camillo, First Selectman 

WHEREAS, In 1872 J. Sterling Morton proposed to the Nebraska Board of Agriculture that a special day be set aside for the planting of trees; and

WHEREAS, This holiday, called Arbor Day, was first observed with the planting of more than a million trees in Nebraska; and

WHEREAS, 2020 is the 148th Anniversary of the holiday and Arbor Day is now observed throughout the nation and the world; and

WHEREAS, Trees can reduce the erosion of our precious topsoil, cut heating and cooling costs, moderate temperature, clean the air, absorb storm water, produce life-giving oxygen, and provide habitat for wildlife; and

WHEREAS, Trees are a renewable resource giving us paper, wood for our homes, fuel for our fires, and beautify our community; and

WHEREAS, The value Greenwich places on trees, demonstrated through projects and protection put forth by the Town and its civic organizations, helped earn a Sustainable CT Silver Certification; and

WHEREAS, Trees, wherever they are planted are a source of joy and spiritual renewal.

hereby proclaim Friday, April 24, 2020 as
Arbor  Day 

in the Town of Greenwich and urge all our citizens, to gladden the heart and promote the well-being of this and future generations.
