HJ - Standard Clarinda Sign

The Arbor Day Foundation’s Clarinda Tree Recovery Campaign, a partnership between the Arbor Day Foundation and Clarinda Trees Forever, will distribute 100 trees in Clarinda.

The tree distribution will be held from 8-10 a.m. in the east parking lot of the Clarinda Lied Center. These new trees will replace trees damaged and destroyed by the Emerald Ash Borer.

“The people of Iowa have suffered great personal and physical loss,” Dan Lambe, Arbor Day Foundation president, said. “By replanting, we strive to bring healing and hope to the people and the communities in which they live, as well as help return the beauty and value tress bring back to their properties.”
