In celebration of Arbor Day, the village of Montgomery will hold a tree dedication ceremony and sapling giveaway at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 27, at the Arboretum Garden Park.

The focal point of this year’s Arbor Day celebration will be the dedication of a Redbud Tree to the Arboretum Garden Park.

This tree dedication underscores the village’s commitment to preserving and enhancing the natural environment of Montgomery for generations to come, according to a news release from the village.

The ceremony will feature remarks from village staff highlighting the importance of trees in maintaining ecological balance, the importance of trees for communities and environmental sustainability, according to the release.
