City Arborist Thanks Artist for Tree Sculpture

“Trees are an important asset to our community. I think the most important component of the infrastructure as they save us millions of dollars in storm water mitigation and energy consumption. Trees provide us cleaner air and a more comfortable place to live. The Urbana community understands this better than most. Trees are synonymous to Urbana.

Art is a wonderful experience of humankind. Art provides us community a universal language of expression and pause for deeper thought of being. We want to thank John David Mooney for providing Urbana Champaign such an artful expression of Urbana’s symbiotic relationship with trees. This Park so wonderfully celebrates that cohesion.”
