TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) – Like trees?

Arbor Day isn’t until April 27, but it’s not too early for Idaho communities to start planning activities to celebrate the tree-themed day.

For instance, communities may apply for Arbor Day grants to purchase trees, shrubs and other foliage for that day’s celebrations.

Grant applications are available online, and are due my March 23 to the Idaho Nursery & Landscape Association.

Idaho Power Co., which for the past 16 years has partnered with other Idaho utilities and the Idaho Department of Lands to support the grants, this year has donated $7,000 to fund 45 Arbor Day grants of $300 each.
