Save the date! The City of Highland Park will celebrate Arbor Day 2022 on Saturday, April 30 with a drive-thru event, 9:00 – 11:00 AM at Ravinia Festival – West Parking Lot (off of Green Bay Road). Bicyclists and walk-up participants are welcome!
The event is focused on giving away hundreds of free native oak tree seedlings, but other giveaways will include native shrubs, milkweed plants, pollinator-friendly seed packets, and more! Residents are encouraged to plant new trees on their property to replace trees lost to Emerald Ash Borer infestation. Visit cityhpil.com/arborday for planting guidance; note that more information will be added as it becomes available.
Many thanks to the Ravinia Festival, Advanced Tree Care, Bartlett Tree Care Experts, ComEd, and Davey Tree Care for supporting this event!
