Quincy celebrates 28 years of being a "Tree City USA" member

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

This Arbor Day also marks the 28th anniversary of Quincy being designated as a Tree City USA.

Three dogwood trees, two pink and one white, were planted in front of The Connie Niemann Center for Music on Quincy University's North Campus on Friday.

One tree commissioner says she hopes Arbor Day encourages people to plant more trees.

"Arbor Day is very important and it's a tradition that we have in the city to do it. And I think we need to keep doing it. And we know that people love trees and it's part of our city, it's part of the beauty of our city," said Anne St. John, the Chairmen for the Quincy Tree Commission.

After the proclamation, those in attendance headed inside the Niemann Center to end the celebration with two music soloists.

The Trees for Tomorrow campaign is trying to rebuild the canopy along Maine Street. For more information, click here.
