Arbor Day

Please join The Franklin Tree Commission and the City of Franklin Parks Department for tons of fun in the trees with opportunities in tree climbing,  kids’ activities, food, information and free tree saplings at Pinkerton Park in Franklin, TN from 10am-2pm on Saturday, April 16.

Master tree climbing instructor Tim Kovar, from Tree Climbing Planet will guide individuals into the crown of a tree for a public tree climb with several stations, all certified equipment will be provided during this annual family friendly event. Participants will ascend into the tree using the same rope-and-saddle method that canopy researchers use. “Getting up into a tree – being surrounded by the branches – is just a great way to explore nature,” said Tim Kovar. “Not only is it just plain fun, it connects us with the natural world in a way that not many people are exposed to.”

The tree climb is free and open to the public. Participants must be at least six years old and be wearing closed-toe shoes. For more information please email parksinfo@franklintn.gov
