Paddock Lake government officials and residents — with a big assist from some Cub Scouts — celebrated trees and Arbor Day on Saturday.

As part of the festivities, the village was recognized as a Tree City USA. This was the 20th year in a row the village has earned this designation.

Here is video of Kim Gorenc Sebastian, Regional Urban Forestry coordinator, from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources presenting the Tree City USA award inside Village Hall:

Here is some video of the planting:

Everyone was able to go home with either a Colorado blue spruce or a white pine sapling.

Here are some more photos:
