Students from local schools will help plant a tree. The community is invited to participate in the event.
This year's Arbor Day tree will be a Chinese Pistache, a tree that grows to about 40 feet high with a 35 foot spread in Arizona. The Chinese Pistache is remarkably tolerant of aridity, heat and alkaline soil. Its dark green foliage and umbrella top provide excellent shade on hot summer days.
