EUGENE, Ore. - Community members of all ages helped plant trees Saturday at Alton Baker Park in celebration of Arbor Day.

Part of the day's event included Mayor Lucy Vinnis accepting the "2018 Tree City USA Award" from the Arbor Foundation.

This is the 39th consecutive year the Eugene earned Tree City USA status for its commitment to its urban forest.

There are more than 100,000 street trees in Eugene's urban forest.

They provide cooling shade in the heat, reduce energy use and noise, improve air and water quality, and provide habitat for wildlife.
