LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB Fox 41)-- More than 400 trees were given away in downtown Louisville Saturday. It was all part of the Arbor Day celebration at the Downtown YMCA.

The Y partnered with the city as part of an effort to raise awareness about urban forestry. Booths were set up to explain to children and adults about tree planting.

"This is just the one time of year that we want to come out and educate the community and create some habits and hopefully continue this on daily," said Kenny Horter, Executive Director of Downtown YMCA.

Often times, trees in an urban setting can provide oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide caused by humans and pollution
