The Delaware Forest Service recently announced the winners of the 2011 Arbor Day Poster Contest. Founded by J. Sterling Morton in 1872, Arbor Day is a nationally-celebrated observance that encourages tree planting and care. According to agriculture officials, forests cover nearly 31-percent of Delaware, or about 382,900 acres. Delaware State Forester Michael Valenti says the state recently completed the acquisition of 375 acres of Sussex County forestland that will be added to the existing 11,835 acres in Redden State Forest.

Other Milford winners included Daniel Winston (Winston Learning Academy) in the category 5th Grade, Sussex County and his sister Grace, in the category 3rd & 4th Grades, Sussex County. A brief ceremony was held in Blackbird State Forest on May 4th near Townsend recognizing the winners.
