Friday was the final Friday of April, a day Texans calls "Arbor day."
Lubbock celebrated with a "Trees Across Texas" ceremony. City leaders planted a live Oak Tree at Quest Memorial Grove in honor of the city of Tyler. Former Councilman T.J. Patterson and Dr. A. E. Quest created the Trees Across Texas program in 2000. Since then, Lubbock has exchanged a tree with another Texas city every year.
Quest Memorial Grove is located in the Buddy Holly recreation area East of North University on Canyon Lakes Drive.
