Arbor Day Proclamation


Whereas,  In 1872, J. Sterling Morton Proposed to the Nebraska Board of Agriculture that a special day be set aside for the planting of trees, and

Whereas,  this holiday, called Arbor Day, was first observed with the planting of more than a million trees in Nebraska, and

Whereas,  Arbor Day is now observed throughout the nation and the world, and

Whereas,  trees can reduce the erosion of topsoil by wind and water, cut heating and cooling costs, moderate the temperature, clean air, produce oxygen and provide habitat for wildlife

Whereas,  trees are renewable resource giving us paper, wood for building homes, fuel for fires and countless wood products, and

Whereas,  trees in our Borough increase property values, enhance the economic vitality of     business areas, and beautify our community, and

Whereas,  trees greatly enhance the lives of our residents.

Now, Therefore, I, Peggy Malkin, Mayor of the Borough of Roosevelt, Monmouth County, New Jersey, do hereby proclaim April 29, 2022 as Arbor Day in the Borough of Roosevelt

Further, I encourage all our residents to plant a tree and celebrate Arbor Day.
