The city of Newcastle will celebrate Arbor Day with a tree-planting event Oct. 26.

From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., volunteers will plant trees on a public parcel adjacent to China Creek. Attendees are encouraged to wear sturdy shoes and bring a shovel or trowel.

Community service hours are available and snacks will be provided.

Partners of the event include Newcastle Weed Warriors, Coal Creek Family YMCA and Newcastle Trails.

Arbor Day is in April, but the city celebrates it now due to better planting conditions. The city’s annual celebration is one of the reasons the Washington State Department of Natural Resources recognizes Newcastle as a Tree City USA community.
