Edison Ford Tree Planting

  • Print

Edison Ford Tree Planting April 26, 10:00 a.m. In observation of National Arbor day, The Edison & Ford Winter Estates will be planting a coconut palm tree on the Edison Estate to continue the restoration of this historic landscape. Edison Ford Winter Estates has planted a tree every year on Arbor Day to maintain the old fashion plants on the historical site. Mr. and Mrs. Edison themselves planted dozens of coconut palms on their tropical winter estate that eventually became an important and recognizable feature of the Edison and Ford tropical gardens. The public is invited to join in the ceremony with students from the nearby Edison Park Creative and Expressive School for the Arts. Since 1872 Arbor Day has been a national holiday celebrated each year by planting a tree. The public can support the Edison coconut Palm Restoration Project by contributing funds to purchase a tree. Contributions are tax deductible and include donation signage.
