Arbor Day 2016 - Bethlehem School District

What better way to teach kids about trees than to have a grown adult climb a tree! And what better way to give back to our community than to offer free tree services to our schools.

Arbor Day 2016 fell on Friday, April 29th and Monster Tree Service was spotted giving back to the Bethlehem community in several ways -

1) Select students from Hanover Elementary School and Asa Packer Elementary School were given an opportunity to learn about trees, their importance in our community and how to properly care for them. They were given coloring books and t-shirts for answering our "tree knowledge" questions correctly! They also had the opportunity to see the Monster Tree Service arborists in action!

2) Monster Tree Service donated over $4,000 worth of tree services to the Bethlehem School district and were trimming trees at both schools in conjunction with our Arbor Day events. Students were given a rare, live glimpse of actual tree care practices and had the opportunity to ask questions of our ISA Certified Arborists.

Arbor Day is an annual observance that celebrates the role of trees in our lives and promotes tree planting and care. As a formal holiday, it was first observed in 1872, in Nebraska, but tree planting festivals are as old as civilization.

The owners and employees of Monster Tree Service are very kid friendly and give Monster Tree Service coloring books to kids each and every day. As one of the largest tree services in the Lehigh Valley, we are very thankful for our community and like to give back as much as possible. We thought, what better way to give back than to help our youngest residents learn about trees and to help our schools during these difficult financial times.
