Auburn Parks & Recreation 20th Annual Arbor Day Tree Sale

Posted by thowens on April 14, 2015

Arbor Day – celebrated in communities around the world – is a day to appreciate the importance of trees as a vital natural resource. After all, trees have a big job. They clean the air and water… provide food and habitat for wildlife… give us products in the form of wood, lumber and paper… and, of course, help beautify our community.

The tree sale will be held on Friday, April 24 from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. and on Saturday, April 25 from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the Rieke Park Lodge, 1600 N. Indiana Avenue.

Some of the species include:

  • Reblooming Lilac
  • Butterfly Bush
  • Tulip
  • Cedar
  • Choke Cherry
  • Cleveland Pear
  • Autumn Blaze Maple
  • American Elm
  • Dogwood
  • Redbud
  • Birch
  • Red Oak
  • Hydrangea
  • Pines
  • Spruce

The majorities of trees are close to 5 foot or taller and are in rootbags so their roots have not been disturbed. The shrubs, pines and spruce varieties are in containers. All of our trees are grown locally. Rain barrels will also be available for purchase.
