Keep Soddy-Daisy Beautiful hosts second Arbor Day celebration

SODDY-DAISY, Tenn. (WDEF) — Soddy-Daisy will have its second Arbor Day Celebration on March 4. The nonprofit, Keep Soddy-Daisy Beautiful, is hosting the event, which it says will be twice as big as last year’s.

This year’s celebration will take place at Veterans Park, located at 9009 Dayton Pike. It will start at 9:30 a.m.

Volunteers will plant 35 large, native trees this year. The organization says they will plant red maple, willow oak and tulip poplar trees.

The Soddy-Daisy community will team up with student volunteers from Ivy Academy, Soddy-Daisy High School and the Scouts to plant the trees. In addition, this event is open to the public.

Anyone who wants to join the event is welcome. Keep Soddy-Daisy Beautiful said, “you can plant trees if you are physically able, help in other ways or just watch this wonderful event taking place.”

“We are thrilled to continue our efforts in beautifying and improving our community through this Arbor Day Celebration,” said Jim Stewart of KSDB, organizer of the event. “We are grateful for financial support from the City of Soddy-Daisy, generous donors and the Tennessee Department of Forestry.”
