NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. -- The longest running "Tree City" in Oneida County was celebrated in New Hartford Wednesday.
An Arbor Day ceremony was held at the village green. This is the 38th year for the Tree City USA distinction for the village.
Second graders from Bradley Elementary School, sang songs, and read poems in honor of the day.
This year, 25 new trees, were planted in the village.
The village is celebrating Abor Day in June because it's a little too cold in April.
To get the Tree City distinction, the village puts thousands of dollars toward keeping its trees alive and well.
