The town of Windermere celebrated Florida’s Arbor Day with its annual Windermere Treebute Arbor Day Festival Jan. 16 in the Town Square.
Children got a bird’s-eye view of the town at the children’s tree-climb challenge, while more experienced climbers tested their mettle in the Geezers in Treezers competition.
Guests also were able to pick up free trees, learn planting tips at the “Ask the Arborist” booth and enjoy live music.
The Windermere Tree Board, Tree Climbing Concepts Training Team Inc., Windermere Garden Club and Duke Energy Florida sponsored the event, which benefited Windermere’s Urban Forestry program.
