North Tonawanda Mayor Austin J. Tylec announced the annual Arbor Day celebration will take place at 10 a.m. Friday, April 29, within Pine Woods Park.
Director of Parks & Recreation Alex Domaradzki said, “Arbor Day is a chance for us to recognize the importance of the trees, which contribute to our personal health, promote clean air, and keep our city beautiful.”
Supporting this perspective, the City of North Tonawanda completed a Community Forest Management Plan to document the species and health of public trees, which will assist in maintaining community trees.

The mayor’s office, Parks & Recreation Department, Common Council members and Nate Morey from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation in Buffalo will be in attendance to help celebrate this day.
Tylec said, “Arbor Day is an annual observance that celebrates the role of trees in our lives and promotes tree planting and care. Our Parks & Recreation Department will be planting a tree in Pine Woods Park to commemorate this day, and I welcome all residents to attend.”
