Volunteers planted 40 trees at Round Rock's Meadow Lake Park on March 31 for Arbor Day 2007. Volunteers from Dell Computer, Round Rock Church of Christ, City of Round Rock and local community volunteers helped plant the trees at the waters edge.
Although it rained for several days before the tree planting and ducks were swimming earlier in the week where the planting was to take place, volunteers were able to plant the trees along the waters edge and further beautify the park.
About Arbor Day
Arbor Day is America's National Tree Holiday, a day set aside to plant ceremonial trees, educate the public about the importance of trees, and honor the vital role trees play in our everyday lives. The brainchild of journalist Julius Sterling Morton, the first Arbor Day took place on April 10, 1872 in Nebraska. Today, National Arbor Day is celebrated on the last Friday in April.
