Arbor Week 2022 Poster Contest Winners

Tree Cheers to this year’s Arbor Week Poster Contest Winners!

Budding artists from all over the state made colorful and joyful posters with the theme of “Trees Bring Us Together” while learning about the benefits of trees and celebrating our urban forests.

The poster contest winners were announced during the virtual week-long celebration of trees on CAL FIRE’s social media platform (here). The winning posters will also be displayed at the California State Capitol this spring.  As always, we appreciate the dedicated partnership of the U.S. Forest Service and CAL FIRE’s Urban & Community Forestry Department whose support makes this educational program possible.
