BEAUFORT, S.C. (Nov. 30, 2022) – In honor of Arbor Day, which is observed throughout South Carolina on the first Friday in December, the City of Beaufort and its Public Works Department, along with the Beaufort Beautification Club, will plant two trees to continue to add beauty and color to our parks.
The Arbor Day celebration will begin at 10 a.m. on Dec. 2 at the Dowling Duck Pond, at the corner of First Boulevard and Battery Creek Road. The public is invited to attend. The trees to be planted are a Muskogee crape myrtle and a cassia.
For 31 years, the City of Beaufort has been named a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation. Beaufort has received this national award in recognition of its commitment to its trees and urban/community forests. Criteria for this award include having a tree ordinance, a tree board (Park & Tree Advisory Committee), a community forestry program, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.
Trees and donations are courtesy of the Beaufort Beautification Club and City of Beaufort.
