Franklin Celebrates Arbor Day April 16th

arbor day

Join The Franklin Tree Commission and the City of Franklin Parks Department for tons of fun in the trees!

Celebrate Arbor Day with tree and rock wall climbing, tree planting, games, snacks, education, free tree saplings and more at Pinkerton Park in Franklin on Saturday, April 16, from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.

Master tree climbing instructor Tim Kovar, from Tree Climbing Planet, will guide individuals into the crown of a tree for a public tree climb with several stations, all certified equipment will be provided during this annual family friendly event. Participants will ascend into the tree using the same rope-and-saddle method that canopy researchers use.

“Getting up into a tree – being surrounded by the branches – is just a great way to explore nature,” said Tim Kovar. “Not only is it just plain fun, it connects us with the natural world in a way that not many people are exposed to.”

The tree climb is free and open to the public. Participants must be at least six years old and be wearing closed-toe shoes. For more information please check out the website at or email specific questions to [email protected]
