The Sheffield Land Trust and Sheffield Tree Project will hold Sheffield’s annual Arbor Day Celebration and Tree Planting on Saturday, April 28 from 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M.

This year’s event will be planting a nursery of trees for the Sheffield Tree Project and Land Trust to grow for many future plantings. Barnum Hill Farm has generously offered to host the nursery. Refreshments will be provided.

This is a family-friendly event that is free and open to the public. Tom Ingersoll, who leads the Sheffield Tree Project, will read the Arbor Day proclamation and provide a wealth of information about nursery, tree planting and tree care. Come celebrate and get your hands dirty!
