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, the holiday, called "Arbor Day', was first observed in 1872 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 help reduce the erosion of precious topsoil by wind and water, lower heating and cooling costs, moderate the temperature, clean the air, produce oxygen, and provide habitat for wildlife; and

WHEREAS, trees symbolize enduring strength and are a renewable resource that provide paper and wood for our homes, fuel for our fires, and countless beneficial products; and

WHEREAS, trees in the City of Harrogate increase property values, enhance the economic vitality of business and public areas and beautify the community; and

WHEREAS, trees, wherever they are planted, are a source of joy and spiritual renewal,

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Linda Fultz, Mayor of Harrogate, Tennessee, do hereby proclaim Friday,  April 27, 2018 as

ARBOR DAY

In the City of Harrogate, and encourage all citizens and businesses to join in the celebration thereof

and to support efforts to protect trees and woodlands, by preserving the natural and urban forest and planting trees

to promote the well-being of this and all future generations.
