Hoquiam to celebrate Arbor Day, 6th year as Tree City USA, with new trees along 28th Street

In honor of Arbor Day, the City of Hoquiam Urban Forestry Committee, in partnership with  local Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts, will plant two Tschonski flowering crab trees on the west side of Olympic Stadium along 28th Street.

The scouts will join Mayor Jack Durney, Committee Members, and City Staff for the celebration and planting at 4:00 pm on April 25 at Olympic Stadium. Community members are invited to participate in this event. 

An Arbor Day celebration is one of the requirements to become a Tree City USA, a designation the City of Hoquiam has held for the past six years.  Hoquiam is also the only City in Grays Harbor to hold this distinction. 

Micki McNaughton from the Washington Department of Natural Resources will also attend the event to present the Mayor with Hoquiam’s sixth consecutive Tree City USA award.

For more information please contact Joshua Beach, City Planner, at (360) 538-3971 or email at [email protected].

The city has several youtube videos on their website from previous celebrations.
