CLARK, NJ  - In commemoration of Earth Day and Arbor Day, the Clark Preschool planted a flowering dogwood tree donated by Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders in cooperation with the Union County Shade Tree Advisory Board.

Among those in attendance at the April 21 event were Clark Recreation Director Ralph Bernardo, Adam Lambert, and the Preschool staff and children.

Arbor Day was first observed in 1872, by Julius Sterling Morton who worked to improve agricultural techniques throughout the United States when he served as President Grover Cleveland’s Secretary of Agriculture.  His most important legacy is Arbor Day.

In New Jersey, Arbor Day is celebrated on the last Friday in April, and is an excellent opportunity to take stock of the trees on your property, inspect your trees and/or setting aside a special day for tree planting.  The planting of trees not only improves the look of your property, but provides for wind and/or heat protection.

In addition, trees preserve topsoil, reduce erosion, moderate the temperature, clean the air, produce oxygen, and provide habitat for wildlife along with providing a renewable energy source by producing paper, wood, fuel and other products. This was a great way to get together and celebrate the importance of trees!!

Earth Day is Saturday, April 22.
