Leave a lasting legacy through the commemorative tree program

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Arbor Day tree planting

It's Arbor Week in Broken Arrow— a time to recognize the benefits trees provide residents and future generations!

Broken Arrow is a 23-year Tree City USA member and has achieved National Certification from the Arbor Day Foundation and recognition from the Oklahoma Forestry Service and the Oklahoma Community Forest Council. 

Residents who want to leave a legacy beyond Arbor Week can participate in the City's Commemorative Tree Program. It's a way for family, friends, businesses, churches, and civic organizations to donate trees for planting in one of the City's 41 parks covering 800 acres of public land.

Donors may request the park and type of tree, such as shade, flowering, or evergreen. The kind of tree/shrub selected will be from a list of Oklahoma hardy species, including Lacebark Elm, Redbud, Crepe Myrtle, Oregon or Bosnian Pine, Chinese Pistache, Shumard Oak, Water Oak, Bald Cypress, American Holly, Trident Maple, and Shantung Maple. 

The donor will receive their tree location information, and a donor's plaque will be placed next to the tree. A commemorative tree donation is $225, with additional trees ordered at the same time available for $200 each. The City's Parks Department will plant and maintain the tree for three years. 

The City will plant Commemorative Trees ordered between Jan. 1 and June 30 in the fall and those ordered between July 1 and Dec. 31 in the spring. For more information, go to Commemorative Tree Program.

You'd Never Guess That Oklahoma Has More Man-Made Lakes Than Any Other State

Tucked within the Great Plains, Oklahoma is a state that often surprises with its natural beauty. While it may not boast the coastline or massive natural lakes of some other states, what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in quantity. You'd be amazed to discover that Oklahoma is home to more man-made lakes than any other state in the US.

Don't clog with the F.R.O.G.s

Fat FROG

With the holiday weekend approaching, you don’t want your kitchen sink to croak, so don’t put your F.R.O.G.s down the drain.

That’s right, F.R.O.G.s (fats, rags, oil, and grease) are notorious obstructionists in sewer lines and wastewater pump stations.

When these culprits clog the sewer lines, wastewater finds the path of least resistance. It can blow back into your sink or bathtub, creating unsanitary conditions in your home and costing you thousands of dollars to clean up.

When rags, also known as “flushable wipes,” fats, oil, and grease enter the system through a kitchen sink or toilet, they are trouble for the sewer system. 

These wipes wrap around the intricate parts of the City’s pump stations, causing them to shut down. City employees remove enormous amounts of wipes by hand every week to get the system up and running again.

Sewer obstructions, such as these, clog the pump stations that carry wastewater to the City’s wastewater treatment plant. When wastewater comes out of a pump station or a manhole, it gets into our rivers, streams, and ponds and can lead to illnesses for people and animals and harm plant life. Please keep fats, rags, oil, and grease (F.R.O.G.) out of the sewer system. 

When in doubt, throw it out in the trash, do not flush it down the sink or toilet. 

Here are other non-flushable, non-drainable items to avoid putting down your sewer system:

Click this link to see what to NOT flush down the Toilet
yes!  it is a safe link!!

  • ts. Dairy products such as milk, cheese, butter, and used oil or grease. Grease solidifies when it gets cold and will adhere to pipes.
  • Cotton Swabs do not dissolve. They clump together and cause blockages in the system.
  • Paper towels. These are also clogging culprits. They do not dissolve and will clog your pipes. 
  • Dental Floss. Acts as a net catching other objects and debris in the flow. 
  • Tissues. Though they are similar, toilet paper and tissues are not the same. Tissues do not dissolve in water. 
  • Face masks, feminine products, and condoms. These items will not flush and will cause drain and sewer system blockages. 

So please don't clog with the F.R.O.G (fats, rags, oil, and grease). Keep them out of the sewer system to prevent harm to your home, the sewer system, and the environment by throwing them away in the garbage.

AIR-PURIFYING HOUSE PLANTS

 

                                                                                                                                The following article on the most colorful and best-smelling house plants is reprinted from www.houselogic.com, an
                                                                                                                                                                informational website sponsored by the National Association of Realtors.

 

                                                                                                                               Most air-purifying house plants put out their own sweet smell while removing the nasty ones that make your nose curl.
                                                                                                                         But just to clarify, while NASA confirms these plants do tackle toxins, they are not a cure-all for our home here on earth.
                                                                                                                                            They will remove some toxins, but since our homes are not airtight (unlike NASA’s place abodes),
                                                                                                                                                                     they can’t remove everything because the air is constantly changing.

                                                                                                                                                                      But don’t let that put you off. These air-purifying plants can make
                                                                                                                                                      a difference in your home with their sweet scents. Here are a few to get you started

 

·         Jasmine has a sweet odor that can calm you

·         Lavender is great at making you sleepy

·         Rosemary can help you focus and work smarter

·         Sharry Baby Orchid smells like chocolate. Delicious!

·         Mother-in-law Tongue turns carbon monoxide into oxygen

·         Devils Ivy (pothos) can cleanse air of toxic fumes

·         Mums tack on of the toughest toxins: cigarette smoke

·         Peace Lily can reduce annoying, new odors from upholstery and carpet
