April 30th Arbor Day

This is a tree lover’s favorite day of the year, Arbor Day! It always comes on the last Friday day of April since 1872 when a major effort was made to fill the nearly barren state of Nebraska with trees. Arbor is the Latin word for tree and today we have the National Arbor Foundation who helps us remember the importance of trees for providing all they do for mankind. In recent years the Arbor Foundation has planted some 18 million trees on Arbor Day to replace those lost due to natural causes, greed, fire and in the name of progress. If you get a chance, today is a great day for you to plant a tree and watch it grow over the years. It makes you feel a part of nature and is sort of like watching a child grow up.

How to celebrate – Give to the National Arbor Foundation. Plant a tree. Visit a forest.
