Courtyard Between Chambers and Police Station

Initial landscape work has started on the courtyard which is located between the Chambers and Police Station. A Japanese Maple tree was relocated from the old city hall to the courtyard. Per City Forester Robert Gentry this tree is a slow grower which will allow it to be a focal point in the back of this garden for years to come. Robert has facilitated tree plantings in the City of Adrian for the past ten years! Each year he celebrates Arbor Day by choosing a special location for a tree planting. Was this a early Arbor Day celebration? Arbor Day is a nationally-celebrated observance that encourages tree planting and care. Founded by J. Sterling Morton in 1872, it's celebrated on the last Friday in April.
