Arbor Day is a wonderful day for our village to show our pride in the living legacy of our trees."
“Planting a tree is a great way to celebrate Arbor Day,” stated Dave Hull, Mount Prospect Forestry and Grounds Superintendent. “ I hope our citizens will join us this year in planting trees throughout the community, to help perpetuate Mount Prospect’s urban forest,” stated Hull. “To help with this effort, we’ll be happy to send upon request, the latest information about diversified tree species that are appropriate for planting in our area.
