The Twisp Tree Board encourages residents to take part in the town’s annual Arbor Day Celebration on Saturday (April 30), starting at 11 a.m. in the Twisp Commons Park adjacent to the Methow Valley Community Center. The event will include a ceremony, a tree giveaway and a tree planting, demonstrating proper planting techniques.
For the 21st consecutive year the Town of Twisp has been awarded “Tree City USA” status by the National Arbor Day Foundation, celebration organizer and tree advocate Dwight Filer reported. The town established a tree board to celebrate the inaugural Arbor Day Event in 2003.
“We will have 100 Ponderosa pine trees to give away , some heritage apricot progeny from Lois McLean’s old growth apricot tree up the West Chewuch, plus some other surprises,” Filer said. ”First-come, first-served, so come early.”
