Arbor Day is celebrated each year and the City of Antigo Park and Recreation Department recognizes this special day by planting trees and inviting various groups, organizations, and special guests to participate.
The celebration is used as an educational tool to teach our community, its leaders and youth about the value of trees.
Special guests have included Don Kissinger, with the Department of Natural Resources, the City of Antigo Mayor, American Transmission Company representatives, and Dan Siewert from Wisconsin Public Service.
In the past donations we have received from Wisconsin Public Service and the American Transmission Company have made this event possible.
In 2011, 25 trees were planted in City Park to replace trees that were removed as part of our maintenance program, and due to storm damage.
