Staunton Celebrates Commitment to Staying Green

Posted: Updated:

Staunton is celebrating its commitment to staying green. For the 18th time, the city has been named as a “tree city” by the Arbor Day Foundation.

They're celebrating the accomplishment this Saturday in Woodrow Park, where the mayor will present the award. This is in conjunction with Staunton's Earth Day celebration in the Wharf.

"We'll actually have a professional arborist here and he's going to demonstrate kind of climbing and working in trees. We'll have some guys doing little talks on pruning,” said Matt Sensabaugh, Staunton city horticulturist.

They'll also be giving away 300 redbud seedlings to plant on Arbor Day. The festivities are this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, click here.
