Sequim continues the tradition of Arbor Day by planting in the park

The collection of magnificent plants and trees at Pioneer Memorial Park, 387 W. Washington St., continues to grow in part through the town of Sequim’s annual Arbor Day celebration.

Members of the park team, with the help of members of the Sequim Prairie Garden Club, who oversee the maintenance of the park, and Mayor William Armacost, planted a Himalayan cedar about 20 feet from the New Dungeness Nursery on November 19.

Armacost read a proclamation about Sequim’s efforts as “Tree City USA” through the Arbor Day Foundation. This was the fifth year that Sequim had hosted a planting event.

Ty Brown, Sequim’s operations manager, said the tree is doing well in the Pacific Northwest and the area around it will be developed along the west side of the park in the coming months.
