Ada, MN — This Friday, April 30th is Arbor Day, which is a day aside throughout the world to raise awareness of trees and the important role they play in our environment.  The most common way groups and civic organizations celebrate Arbor Day is by planting trees. The City of Ada is required to celebrate as part of their Tree City USA designation and this year they will be observing Arbor Day by planting 3 apple trees in West Side Park with the help of Ada-Borup elementary students. Ada City Administrator Ashley Larson talks more about this year’s tree planting and how the city has celebrated the occasion over the years.

The City of Ada in conjunction with Laughing Earth Nursery will have between 50 and 60 trees to give away for free as part of the Boulevard Shade Tree Program. They are available on a first come first serve basis. A number of tree varieties will be available, including Honeylocust, Siouxland Poplar, Little Leaf Linden, Greenspire Linden, and American Elm. Please contact Ada City Hall or Laughing Earth for more information and complete guidelines.
