When KDB staff dusted off the Yard of the Month signs back in March in anticipation of the new season one thing was clear – the sign posts needed some TLC. We knew the signs needed the work of a professional, so we reached out to Atlas Protective Coatings to see if they could help us out. Pat Quinn was a gem as we told him our situation and asked if they could help. They were up for the task, and donated their services for updating all eight of our sign posts! Because of this, they are a Pecan Level Business Member. We are so happy to have them as part of the KDB Business Membership team!

Another Children’s Arbor Day is in the books! Each year, we are so happy to be able to attend Denton-area schools to teach pre-K and third grade students about Arbor Day and the redbud tree – and to give them each a redbud seedling to plant themselves! This year we visited nine schools and gave out over a 1,000 redbud seedlings, courtesy of program sponsor First United Bank. Every year First United Bank employee, Todd Price, joins us at the schools to present to the students. Many thanks as well to Scott Geer with Tree Shepherds, Haywood Morgan, Urban Forester at City of Denton, and Vanessa Ellison, Recycling Education Coordinator at the City of Denton, who also gave of their time to teach kids about Arbor Day.
Seeing the kids and how much they already know about trees made us very happy. If you have a redbud in your yard that came from Children’s Arbor Day, show it to us! Use the hashtag #myKDBtree, or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
