Ansonia Lumber helps promote Arbor Day values

UNION CITY, Ohio – In honor of Arbor Day, the Ansonia Lumber Company presented Mississinawa Valley fourth-graders with a tree of their own Thursday.

Lucas McCabe, who has a Forest Management degree and is a member of the Society of American Foresters, educated each of the fourth grade classes about what Arbor Day means and features of conifer trees.

Lucas was joined by his father, Mitch McCabe of Ansonia Lumber, in presenting each student with a Colorado Blue Spruce seedling for them to take home and plant in honor of Arbor Day.

Arbor Day is celebrated tomorrow – Friday, Apr. 28. Learn more about what Arbor Day is all about at
