Meanwhile, officials are gearing up for the 22nd Annual South Lyon Arbor Day Tree Planting Ceremony this Friday at 1 p.m. at Volunteer Park. A City of South Lyon official will read the Arbor Day Proclamation to declare the city a “Tree City USA”.

This is the 22nd straight year that South Lyon has been recognized as a “Tree City USA” by the National Arbor Day Organization (www.arborday.org).

Begun in 1976, Tree City USA is one of the Arbor Day Foundation’s oldest programs. Originally comprised of 42 communities in 16 states, today the program includes more than 3,600 communities from all 50 states, Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico.
