    Every year the Tree Board of the City of Las Vegas and the City get together to plant a tree and celebrate National Arbor Day. Last year nearly 50 small trees were planted in Marrujo Park on Commerce Street.

    The city has provided a source of effluent water for the new trees. This year several of last year’s trees will be replaced and a new larger tree will be planted in the same park.

    Mayor Alfonso Ortz will proclaim Arbor Day in Las Vegas at 4 p.m. this Friday, April 29 at the park. The public is invited.
