City of Piedmont Arbor Day Events arborday

This year, the City of Piedmont's Arbor Day Celebration will be held VIRTUALLY on Friday, April 30th. The City will have a link on their website of the Arbor Day video, which highlights the City's 19 heritage trees, as well as a presentation by Zach Parisa speaking about Piedmont's own urban forest.

Arbor Day Tee Planting: The City will be planting three Yulan Magnolias, in memory of Ralston Louie.

Public Works is also hosting a Chalk Art Contest for our youngest residents. Participants can pick their favorite street or park tree (next to a sidewalk), write the tree's name in chalk, along with any inspired artwork honoring the tree! If you need assistance identifying your tree, please  contact Parks & Project Manager, Nancy Kent.

Please send your photo of the artist and tree to [email protected] 

Prizes will be awarded for the most creative tree art!
