Watertown will celebrate Arbor Day with a day of service, and also provide information for people interested in trees, gardening and other related topics.

On Thursday, April 25, Watertown Tree Warden Chris Hayward will work with local companies to do maintenance on trees in Arsenal Park.

“The trees need trimming and removal of some branches,” Hayward said.

Through the Massachusetts Arborists Association, Hayward was able to get local companies to donate their time to do work on the town park. Butler & Sons and Tree Tech, which is doing work for Eversource in Watertown, both donated their time, Hayward said.

Also on that day, local non-profits, town departments and others will have tables in Arsenal Park.

“As we have done in the past, we do a little environmental gathering,” Hayward said. “The Conservation Commission, the Stormwater Advisory Committee, and in the past we have had the Friends of Bees. They spend the afternoon talking about the environment.”

While the work will begin earlier in the morning, Hayward said the tables will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. near the parking area at Arsenal Park.
