Students celebrate Arbor Day by planting a tree in Marshfield

MARSHFIELD (WAOW) -

Some area students planted a tree today, to celebrate Arbor Day.

Students at Immanuel Lutheran in Marshfield had a hands on learning experience. They even took home trees, to plant in their own backyards.

Marshfield also received the Tree City 2011 award, recognizing the work they do with the city's trees.

"It's important to get the kids involved, so they are conscience of what needs to be done in the future," Marshfield Street Division Supervisor Brian Panzer said.

The award is given to cities who maintain a tree program, like Marshfield.

The city has been a member of Tree City USA for 30 years. Marshfield holds the event every year, always with a focus on students from different schools.
