Arbor Day 2022

On January 21, 2022, the Palm Beach Gardens Woman's Club and the City celebrated Arbor Day 2022. On that beautiful Friday morning, President Karen Kraatz of the Woman's Club opened the ceremony by welcoming Mayor, Rachelle Litt, Vice Mayor, Chelsea Reed, City Manager, Ron Ferris, and City staff to the 23rd Arbor Day at the PBG Woman's Club Honor Park at Lake Catherine Park.

Mayor Litt read the Arbor Day Proclamation proclaiming January 21, 2022, Arbor Day and presented the Proclamation document to the PBG Woman's Club. This year the PBG Woman's Club donated the Champak Tree to the City. City Forester, Mark Hendrickson, provided a few tree facts about the Champak Tree. Joe Corrao, Director of Parks and Public Facilities attended with Parks Staff who care for the trees all year. For the tree planting ceremony, all the gold shovels were lifted with soil to establish the Champak Tree as the 2022 Arbor Day tree.
