Tree-mendous celebration at Rockwall’s Park at Emerald Bay

ROCKWALL, TX (Nov. 7, 2022) Did you know? The City of Rockwall has planted over 468 trees in the last four years in parks, medians and along trails. Although severe weather delayed the city’s 4th annual Arbor Day celebration, city staff planted this Gingko tree at The Park at Emerald Bay after the storm cleared.

The Gingko Biloba is one of the oldest living organisms on the planet and is referred to as a living fossil from the time of dinosaurs.

Rockwall Mayor Kevin Fowler proclaimed Nov. 4, 2022 as Arbor Day in the City of Rockwall. The proclamation shared that the City of Rockwall has tree preservation and landscape ordinances in place to enhance and protect our urban forest since trees increase property values, enhance the economic vitality of business areas, and beautify our community.
