Covington Municipal Specialist of Urban Forestry Crystal Courtney stated, "Arbor Day in the City of Covington is a time to recognize the environmental and social benefits that trees provide. Trees are key to a vibrant and healthy city. As spring comes into full swing, Covington comes back to life with the flowers of the cherry and dogwood trees. The fresh flush of green, inspires us to get outside and appreciate our beautiful city.
