Two groups committed to promoting an environmentally healthy Cranberry Township are joining forces this Arbor Day.
The Township’s Environmental Advisory Committee and the Southern Butler County Garden Club will host an Arbor Day Event from noon to 2 p.m. Friday, April 29 at the Community Garden in the UPMC Passavant Sportsplex at Graham Park.
The EAC, a volunteer group focused on the environmental health of the Township, will give away 150 tree seedlings to interested residents. They will also provide information on how to best plant and grow the trees.
Seedlings are complimentary on a first-come, first-served basis.
At the same time, the Southern Butler County Garden Club will welcome arborist Ben Hartranft of Bartlett Tree Service for a pruning demonstration. He will also lead a question-and-answer discussion on proper tree care and maintenance.
