Come join us in celebrating Fort Bragg’s and North Carolina’s official Arbor Day at 10 a.m. on Friday, 17 March (how fitting – it’s also St. Patrick’s Day) at the Main Post Parade Field – monument area (corner of Randolph. Alexander and Hunt streets). Fort Bragg’s Arbor Day Proclamation will be read and several trees will be planted in the area.
Fort Bragg has actively celebrated North Carolina’s Arbor Day for well over a decade with tree plantings in various locations throughout the installation. The Fort Bragg Arbor Board in conjunction with the Directorate of Public Work’s Environmental Division hosts the tree planting each year.
This year two red cedars will be planted near the monuments to replace several trees that had to be removed due to disease or age.
North Carolina’s Arbor Day is always celebrated on the first Friday after March 15th. The official proclamation and planting event is just one step toward earning the Tree City USA certification. Fort Bragg has proudly been designated Tree City USA for 12 consecutive years.
