Forest, laboratory assistant for horticulture, planted two sugar maples and a sawtooth oak at the Schneebeli Earth Science Center pond for Arbor Day. The tree planting was part of an online instructional video for Dincher's Arboriculture class. Observed in the United States on the last Friday of April, the holiday encourages the planting, nurturing and celebrating of trees. Penn College has repeatedly been honored by the Arbor Day Foundation's "Tree Campus USA" program for establishing and sustaining healthy community forests.
