Arbor Day

Arbor Day

WHEREAS, the Lenawee Conservation District was established in 1946 as an independent county-level resource that works with a variety of other local, state, and federal agencies and organizations to accomplish greater results in conservation and protection of our local natural resources; and 

WHEREAS, the Lenawee Conservation District is self-funded, serving the public with revenue obtained through an annual tree and shrub fundraiser sale, grants, and County appropriations. 

WHEREAS, trees can reduce the erosion of our precious topsoil by wind and water, cut heating and cooling costs, moderate the temperature, clean the air, produce life-giving oxygen, and provide habitat for wildlife; and

WHEREAS, they are a renewable resource giving us paper, wood for our homes, fuel for our fires and countless other wood products; and 

WHEREAS, trees in our neighborhoods also increase property values, enhance the economic vitality of business areas, and beautify our community. 

NOW THEREFORE, in celebration of Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, 2017, each commissioner will be planting trees within their district that have been provided by the Lenawee Conservation District; and

 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Board of Commissioners urge all citizens to become familiar with the conservation services available through the Lenawee Conservation District, and 

FURTHER, to support efforts to protect our trees and woodlands, and remember to plant trees for the well-being of this and future generations.
