Herriman City came to Butterfield Canyon Elementary to teach 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders that trees are very important to our planet. We learned that trees can cool a city down in the summer by 10 degrees. And in one year, an acre of trees can produce enough oxygen for 18 people. We also learned that Herriman City has a lot of trees! Besides all the good things trees do they make our city beautiful. During the assembly, our 2nd grade performed a song they've been learning.
After the program some students became tree ambassadors. They were able to go outside while 2 gentlemen from the city taught them the proper way to plant a tree. We will now get to see the tree grow big and strong. In a few years it will be providing some wonderful shade for us to enjoy.
Thank you Herriman City for our new tree!
