Mansfield, Ohio – The City of Mansfield Shade Tree Commission is pleased to
announce the second program offered to celebrate Arbor Day 2021 and their
participation in the 25th Annual Earth Stewardship Celebration.
On Tuesday, May 11 at 1:00 p.m., Mayor Theaker and representatives of the Shade
Tree Commission will visit Malabar Intermediate School 4th Grade students and give a
brief presentation on the history and importance of Arbor Day, as well as discussing the
importance of trees in an urban setting. Tree seedlings will then be distributed to the
students. The Richland Soil & Water Conservation District generously donated the tree
seedlings for distribution.
The Shade Tree Commission, as part of its annual work plan, continues to provide
education to our local schools as part of their annual Arbor Day Celebration.
The Shade Tree Commission is pleased to provide this hands-on educational activity to
the students, which demonstrates to our youth the importance of volunteerism and the
benefits of urban forestry in our community, while they celebrate Arbor Day 2021.
