BEAUFORT, S.C. (Dec. 3, 2020) – In honor of Arbor Day, which is observed throughout South Carolina on the first Friday in December, the City of Beaufort and its Public Works Department along with the Pigeon Point Beautification Committee and the Beaufort Garden Club, will plant various trees in two locations to further add beauty and color to our parks.

At 10 a.m. Dec. 4, the Arbor Day celebration will start at Christensen Park on Pigeon Point Road, with the assistance of the Pigeon Point Beautification Committee.

The Arbor Day Celebration will continue at 11 a.m. at Morrall Park on Craven Street, with the assistance of the Beaufort Garden Club.

The public is welcome to join the celebrations. Per the Executive Order issued by Gov. Henry McMaster, those in attendance will be required to wear masks and maintain proper social distancing due to Covid-19.

For 29 years, the City of Beaufort has been named a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation. Beaufort has received this national award in recognition of its commitment to its trees and urban/community forests. Criteria for this award include having a tree ordinance, a tree board (Park & Tree Advisory Committee), a community forestry program, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.

“Gaining Tree City USA recognition is an honor to the tree workers, managers, volunteers, PTAC members and others who work so hard on behalf of our community trees,” said Parks Supervisor Adam Wellins. “It is a time when we reflect on the beauty of trees and recognize the benefits and dynamic nature of our ever-changing urban forest.”

  • Beaufort Garden Club
  • City of Beaufort
