Diamond Hill Park hosts Fort Worth Arbor Day celebration, receives new trees

See also

Fort Worth’s Diamond Hill Park is helping the city celebrate Arbor Day and the fact that city has been named a Tree City USA for the 33rd year. In honor of receiving this recognition yet again, Diamond Hill Park is hosting a presentation and announcement of new heritage trees, followed by the planting of new trees in the park.

The celebration begins at 10 a.m. on Friday, November 2, and will include reading the event proclamation, the presentation of the Tree City USA status and the Growth Award, and new heritage trees will be announced. Then the park will receive its new trees, planted by volunteers from iProspect; TCU Leaps will plant trees in the surrounding neighborhoods on Saturday.

The city’s Heritage Tree program, if you don’t know, “helps foster an appreciation of trees, and promotes public awareness that heritage trees are a living and distinct resource for the Fort Worth community.”

Each year applications are accepted and reviewed for new trees to be named Heritage Trees. To receive the name, trees must meet at least one of four criteria. If you know a tree worthy of being named a Heritage Tree, it’s simple to nominate it.
There are a lot of trees in Fort Worth, but there’s always room for more, and new trees in the 9.8-acre Diamond Hill Park will be a wonderful addition to the amenities it already features: shelters and grills, playground, trail, tennis, and volleyball.

If you can’t make it to the celebration, visit the park anytime, and thank Fort Worth, as you’re sitting in the shade of one of the trees, for being a Tree City.

Diamond Hill Park is located at 1701 N.E.37th St.
