Arbor Week 2018

Arbor Day Proclamation

  • Whereas: Grinnell's city forest along our streets and in our parks is an increasingly vital resource that purifies our air and water, conserves our soil and energy, provides wildlife habitat, yields bountiful recreation opportunities and generally improves the quality of our life; and
  • Whereas: Human activities such as construction damage and pollution, as well as severe weather, insects and disease threaten our trees, creating the need for concerted action to ensure the future of our city forest; and 
  • Whereas: The people of this community, nation and world have celebrated Arbor Day through many ways including the planting of trees; and
  • Whereas: This year, the people of Grinnell pay special attention to the wonderful gift that trees represent and dedicate themselves to the continued health of our city's urban forest;

Now, therefore, I, Dan F. Agnew, Mayor of the city of Grinnell, Iowa, do hereby proclaim April 23rd through April 27th Arbor Week for 2018.

Further, I urge the citizens of Grinnell to become aware of the importance of trees to our community's well-being and to participate in tree planting programs, which will ensure a green Grinnell in the decades to come.

Signed: Dan F. Agnew, Mayor   Date: March 27, 2018
