Today is Arbor Day! Arbor Day is a day dedicated to the celebration of trees! Trees provide many benefits to the ecosystem and to us! In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, trees help clean air and water, their roots help prevent erosion and their leafy canopies provide shade and shelter both for humans and wildlife. With all of the services trees provide they deserve a a day recognizing how wonderful they are.
Here are a few ideas for ways to celebrate Arbor Day:
- Take a stroll through the woods and enjoy the trees around you
- Read a book about trees. The Lorax and the Giving Tree are two of our favorite tree themed children’s books
- Or plant a tree! Remember each tree planted helps to clean the air, water, prevent erosion and provide shelter for wildlife! If you do decide to plant a tree today, here is a quick tree planting guide to help!
