Highland Park Celebrates Arbor Day

On Friday, Highland Park continued its tradition of recognizing Arbor Day by planting six redbud trees in Prather Park and Davis Park. Here, Mayor Joel Williams (left) and parks foreman Mike Rangel plant a forest pansy redbud in Davis Park.

Arbor Day, which has been recognized in Texas since 1890, traditionally comes on the last Friday in April. Each year, the parks department recognizes this by planting at least one tree.
