The city of Calabasas will issue a proclamation this week declaring Saturday, March 23 as Arbor Day.
The Calabasas City Council will make the proclamation at its Wednesday, Feb. 13 meeting.
In honor of Arbor Day, the city of Calabasas will be holding a tree-planting ceremony at the Gates Canyon Park. The event will include tree-planting for kids starting at 9:30 a.m. and the official tree-planting ceremony at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, March 23.
The resolution and event is needed for the city to renew its status as a Tree City, USA. This will be the 14th year that Calabasas is recognized as a Tree City, USA.
Once annually, the City must both adopt an Arbor Day resolution and hold an Arbor Day event to renew the City’s TREE CITY, USA status.
The estimated cost of the event will be about $1,000, which will be taken from the city’s Arbor Day Budget, according to a city staff report.
