Arbor Day

A couple of weeks ago I had the good fortune to join some of the second graders at Shelton Elementary as they and City Forestor Dave High planted a new spruce tree in Heritage Dells Park in honor of Arbor Day. Although it represented a net loss of trees from Ward 4 (since Dave moved it from its home by the Community Center), we plant tons of trees every year in Golden and it was fun to be part of the event. (And of course I'll make sure Ward 4 gets its fair share of new trees!) Dave did a terrific job with the kids, keeping them engaged while answering their diverse questions, and, frankly, the machine they used to actually plant the tree was pretty cool as well.
