FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Department of Public Works and students at Keefe Technical High School marked Arbor Day 2022, bu doing work at Macomber Estate, off Badger Road.

Workers and students pruned trees and planted a few new trees too.

The then-Town of Framingham acquired part of the Macomber Estate, known as Raceland, in 1971 for conservation purposes.

The 57-acre acre parcel encompasses meadows, wetlands and upland forest.

Arbor Day is always observed on the last Friday in April.

Arbor Day is a national holiday created to recognize the importance of trees. The most common way people celebrate Arbor Day is to get together in groups to plant trees.

SOURCE will publish more photos later.
