The plaque was in honor of Forsyth’s 17th year of recognition as a Tree City USA, a national program recognizing communities with a demonstrated commitment to caring for and managing their public trees. As part of their annual celebration of Arbor Day on April 26, the Tree Board members and Coloni will be distributing Norway Spruce and Colorado Blue Spruce tree seedlings to first and second grade students at Maroa-Forsyth Grade School and to first through sixth grade students at Decatur Christian School in Forsyth.
