Gulf Shores Proclaims February 27 Arbor Day as it Celebrates 34 Years as a Tree City


Gulf Shores Mayor Robert Craft and the Gulf Shores City Council presented a Proclamation to the Gulf Shores Beautification Board during the Monday, January 25, City Council Meeting, declaring February 27, 2021, to be Arbor Day in the City of Gulf Shores.

The 34th Arbor Day Celebration will take place on Saturday, February 27, from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. at the Gulf Shores Elementary School. This year the event will operate as a drive-through to provide a safe environment for all participants.

Residents of each household that reside within the Gulf Shores corporate limits may select four different trees from six different varieties: Persimmon, Pecan, Witch Hazel, Turkey Oak, Bald Cypress and Red Bay.

To receive the trees, residents must show proof of residency. The trees are potted in one-gallon containers and are ready for planting. A brochure giving specifics on each tree is available to residents. Members of the Gulf Shores Landscape Division will be onsite to answer questions about the trees.
