La Veta Arbor Day Tree Planting
June [email protected]:30 pm-5:00 pm
Please join La Veta’s Park & Tree Board (P&TB) on June 22 at 4:30 PM with planting our Arbor Day Tree at the corner of E Ryus and Main Street. In 2020, La Veta completed 35 years as a Tree City USA community. More than 3,400 communities have made the commitment to becoming a Tree City USA. They have achieved Tree City USA status by meeting four core standards of sound urban forestry management: maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry and celebrating Arbor Day.
Do you enjoy walking along La Veta’s shady streets? Do you enjoy spending time in La Veta’s park with friends, your children, your dog? Do you want to help improve and maintain La Veta’s “urban” forest at the park and along the streets? Do you want to know how to properly plant a tree or prune a tree? Are you a resident of La Veta? If so, we hope you will consider applying to be a member of La Veta’s Park & Tree Board.
The Board’s activities include obtaining and fulfilling grants, consulting on requests for tree work, conducting visual inspections, and providing advice for the community. Check out our Parks & Trees page on the Town’s website at https://townoflaveta-co.gov/parks-trees/ The Board members hold work sessions available to the public to prune trees from the ground, plant trees and care for our trees including watering and mulching newly planted trees.
