Southfield celebrates Arbor Day with tree planting
Southfield Mayor Dr. Ken Siver, Councilman Jason Hoskins and numerous residents celebrated Arbor Day today with a special tree planting in front of city hall! As a proud Tree City USA Award recipient for the past 35 consecutive years, Southfield has long been committed to protecting green spaces with over 800 acres of park land including 400 acres of woodlands and wetlands set aside for preservation.
Healthy trees in our communities improve our environment. In addition to the visual impact of trees, tree canopies and root systems provide a natural filter to our water supply and reduce storm water runoff, flooding and erosion. The City of Southfield has also won several awards for its green, environmentally-friendly policies, programs and projects.
