Arbor Day

On April 26, Charlottesville Parks and Recreation planted a large diameter Platanus occidentalis in Quarry Park, Girl Scouts planted five saplings, and Charlottesville Area Tree Stewards unveiled a plaque designating the big sycamore in the background as a landmark tree. Virginia Department of Forestry recognized Charlottesville as a “Tree City” for the 7th year running. Tree Commission boss and former Charlottesville Mayor Elizabeth Waters was on hand, as was City Councilor Kathy Galvin.
