  • Arbor Day will be celebrated at Francis Field on Friday, January 15, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. Though Arbor Day is celebrated nationally on the last Friday in April, individual states hold ceremonies on dates that are more appropriate for their own tree-planting season. The City of St. Augustine presents its 38th annual celebration of Arbor Day, and the public is welcome to attend.

    Free saplings to the public including Southern Red Cedar, Sweet Bay Magnolia, and Florida Loquat will be available on a first come basis at the pull out on West Castillo Drive. There will not be any school events this year.

    The Arbor Day event is held annually to recognize the importance of trees to the ecosystem and to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees in their own lives and backyards. The City of St. Augustine is proud to be designated a Tree City USA once again this year. More than 100 trees have been planted as part of the City's Arbor Day ceremonies. 

    Admission: FREE

    When: Friday, January 15, 2021, beginning at 11:00 a.m.

    Where: Francis Field is located at 25 W Castillo Drive in St. Augustine FL 32084.
