Meredith Perkins, Urban and Community Forestry Coordinator with Utah Forestry and State Lands presented a plaque, flag and street signs to Mayor Lawson and councilwoman Nina Laycook as the official Tree City USA award during the annual Arbor Day celebration.

 Perkins also presented an enlightening presentation of "the right tree in the right place'' as well as "don''t top the trees, the facts and myths about proper pruning of shade trees".

 Kanab''s shade tree committee chaired by Loretta Clayson has worked hours to get funding and education in place for the shade trees in Kanab City. Kanab City has also adopted a shade tree ordinance as well as several tree and landscaping criteria for commercial and industrial properties.

 All and all Kanab is shaping up to be a pretty shady community.

I caught a few photos of the end of the rainbow right here in Kanab after the evening rain. Looks like Kanab''s pot of gold is its community spirit.
