What makes West Norwalk so beautiful… all of the various tree species that flourish in our yards, along our roads and schools.
The city of Norwalk with its own Tree Warden , Deputy Tree Wardens, Tree Advisory Committee, Tree Alliance, and Tree Liaisons reflects a city serious about protecting its trees. The city has been designated by the U.S. Arbor Day Foundation as Tree City USA for eight consecutive years.
As part of Norwalk’s desire to educate its residents about trees, the 6th annual Norwalk- Wilton Tree Festival will take place rain or shine on May 19th (Saturday).
May 19th at Cranbury Park
Free admission, food, and parking!

The Tree Festival showcases an array of environmentally oriented exhibits and demonstrations on tree care by Arborists. The Arborists will offer free advise on care and identifying trees. There will be live animals, and adventuresome “safe” tree climbing for the younger set.
Over 30 organizations will be present and last year’s attendance was about 1,500. One of the organizers will be giving away free saplings of blue spruce and red cedar.
The festival will be family friendly and help to promote the idea that trees have a value to our city of Norwalk, and are a natural resource that enhances the quality of life.
I will be at the festival all day, and will be found in the Department of Public Works Tent. Come visit me and learn about being a Tree Liaison and much more by walking around.. Oh and it is dog friendly..
