(October 29, 2012) Spend some time enjoying the outdoors with your family this coming weekend while learning more about the dozens of different trees in the City of Frisco. The 2012 Arborfest celebration is on Saturday, November 3, in Frisco Commons Park, located at 8000 McKinney Rd. The celebration starts at
9 a.m. with a ceremonial tree planting.
Learn how you can help protect and improve our urban forest. Frisco Commons Park has more than forty different tree species. Members of the Urban Forestry Board will be your guides for tree identification tours through the park.
The Urban Forestry Board will also announce the winners of the annual Champion Tree Competition. This year’s categories are sweet gum and ash. The winning trees must be on private property and within the Frisco city limits. Winners of the 2012 tree competition will receive plaques to display in front of their champion trees.
Arborfest is sponsored by the Frisco Urban Forestry Board and the Frisco Parks & Recreation Department. Frisco Garden Club will also take part in the celebration. For more information call 972-292-6500.
