Vandalia to plant Buckeye Tree to celebrate Arbor Day


Staff report



VANDALIA — The City of Vandalia will hold an Arbor Day event on Friday, April 29. The City is taking Buckeye pride a step further by planing a Buckeye Tree at Helke Park, 888 Randler Avenue.

The public is invited to the ceremony which will be held at 1 p.m. Mayor Arlene Setzer will be on hand to read a proclamation and staff from the city’s Parks and Recreation Department will plant the tree.

In 2015 Vandalia earned the designation of a Tree City USA. This Arbor Day event is done in conjunction with our Tree City, USA designation.

The tree will be planted in an area of the park that has been devastated by the Emerald Ash Borer. Officials have had to remove several trees over the past couple of years due to the infestation of the borer.
