With shovels in hand, local and state officials will ceremoniously put mulch around a newly-planted tree on the library grounds, formalizing the celebration and leaving a permanent mark commemorating the event. After the ceremony, volunteers will plant 40 additional trees as a tribute to George H.W. Bush, the 41st president, and his leadership in growing healthy, sustainable urban forests through the America the Beautiful Act.​
