Proclamation of the City of Brentwood
Declaring April 21, 2007 as National Arbor Day

WHEREAS, In 1872, J. Sterling Morton proposed to the Nebraska Board of Agriculture that a special day be set aside for the planting of tree; and

WHEREAS, this holiday, called Arbor Day, was first observed with the planting of more than a million trees; and

WHEREAS, Arbor Day is now observed throughout the nation and the world; and

WHEREAS, trees can reduce the erosion of our precious topsoil by wind and water, cut heating and cooling costs, moderate the temperature, clean the air, produce life-giving oxygen, and provide habitat for wildlife; and

WHEREAS, trees are a renewable resource giving us paper, wood for our homes, and fuel for our fires; and

WHEREAS, trees in our city increase property values, enhance the economic vitality of business areas, and beautify our community; and

WHEREAS, trees, wherever they are planted, are a source of joy and spiritual renewal;

WHEREAS, the City of Brentwood will celebrate Arbor Day on Saturday, April 21, 2007 at Creekside Park from 9 a.m. to 12 noon;

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that I Robert Taylor, Mayor of the City of Brentwood, proclaim April 21, 2007 as Arbor Day and encourage all citizens to celebrate and support efforts to protect our trees and woodlands in our community.

Dated this 27th day of March, 2007
