Mayor Collins has announced that Nov. 5 has been dubbed as ‘Arbor Day in Paradise Valley.’

Town officials planted an indigenous tree at the Town Hall Complex as part of an ongoing tree planting program on public grounds.

The day is “to be celebrated by all citizens as a day to plan trees and enjoy our natural desert environment,” according to a town proclamation signed by Mayor Collins.

The proclamation states that the Town of Paradise Valley was recognized as a “Tree City, U.S.A.” in April 1997.
