Texas Arbor Day was celebrated Friday morning at Breckenridge Park with a tree-planting ceremony hosted by the Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department and the Tree Advisory Committee.

Sixteen trees, including Cedar Elms, Mexican White Oak and Anacua, were planted at the park. Volunteers were welcomed to help out and planting supplies and tools were provided.

Parks & Recreation will also plant over 100 trees throughout the park system during the fall months.
