You are cordially invited to celebrate Arbor Day with the Rhode Island Tree Council, National Grid, RI Department Environmental Management and The Newport Tree Society on April 29, 2016.
Arbor Day recognizes the importance of trees. Trees purify the air, provide cooling shade and soothe the human psyche. Their ability to slow and absorb storm-water saves taxpayers millions of dollars in annual flood damage and treatment costs. Trees also beautify the places where we live, work and recreate. There are literally hundreds of benefits derived from trees that help to improve the planet and the welfare of the human race. As you can see, trees are special, so special, in fact, that RITree plans to honor them on Arbor Day and we would like for you to attend.
