National Arbor Day is being celebrated around the country and in Morris today, and Morris horticulturist and member of the Tree Advisory Board Tom Holm told KMRS that Morris has a long tree-friendly history. Holm said Morris has been planting an average of 75 trees per year for the past 20 years, when it was designated as a Tree City USA.

At 5 p.m. today, rain or shine, 15 trees will be planted on the grounds of the Stevens County History Museum in Morris, with help from museum volunteers, local chapters of the Girl Scouts, and interested community members.

The museum will provide hot drinks and refreshments for all helpers.
