Council to hold Arbor Day Celebration

Posted 4/20/12

EXETER – The Rhode Island Tree Council is inviting the public to help plant, mulch and water 50 red oak saplings at Rhode Island Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Exeter during its Arbor Day celebration on April 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“We try to make our Arbor Day celebration a day of learning and fun, especially for kids,” said Jon Campanini, technical director of RITree. “We also like to make it a day of meaning. It’s a great opportunity for people to learn the basics of tree care.”

The organization began planting saplings at the cemetery in 2008 hoping to spruce up what Campanini called “rather barren” grounds that become damaged from wind and sun. RITree will plant 50 saplings this year to add to the 127 already planted there. Some of those were planted as part of RITree’s Trees Honoring Troops Program which honors active, veterans, and fallen members of military service.

In the celebrations it has conducted since 1997, RITree has planted more than 1,500 saplings across the state.
