Plant a tree for Arbor Day
Arbor Day is a nationally-celebrated observance that encourages tree planting and care. Founded by J. Sterling Morton in 1872, it's celebrated on the last Friday in April. Planting trees is an easy way to improve the environment. Trees reduce greenhouse gases. They reduce ozone levels in urban areas. The provide shade and reduce the need for air conditioning. They beautify our spaces.
An Arbor Day celebration can be as large or as small as you want to make it. Your Arbor Day can be a few neighbors gathering to plant trees in a park behind your homes or at a nearby school. Arbor Day can be a single class project or an event for the whole school, an inner city neighborhood planting trees in a vacant lot, or a huge citywide or statewide celebration.
