Plant a Tree for Arbor Day!
Each year, we celebrate National Arbor Day on the last Friday of April. This special day goes to honor the importance of trees and all of the benefits they provide us with. Did you know that one single tree can generate $31,250 worth of oxygen in a course of 50 years? In that day, they provide $63,000 worth of air pollution control while controlling $31,500 worth of soil erosion, and recycling $37,500 worth of water, according to the Arbor Day Foundation.
On April 24th, we encourage you to plant a tree for Arbor Day! Planting a tree is a great way to bond with friends, family, and neighbors while promoting the survival of our beautiful planet. Did you know that you can even plant a tree in memory of a lost loved one or in celebration of a special occasion? These commemorative gestures are perfect for honoring the ones you love most in life. Planting a tree as you say goodbye to a loved one is a great way to watch their memory live on, grow, and continue providing the world with benefits.
If you want to go above and beyond to Arbor Day and celebrate in more ways than just planting a tree, keep these celebration ideas in mind:
- Take a trip down historic lane with your children and go on an “oldest tree” and “biggest tree” scavenger hunt. This is a great way to learn more about your local community and neighborhood.
- Why not clean up your local park? This is a great way to beautify your community and do a good deed that encourages trees to flourish.
- You can even just enjoy the trees! Pack a picnic basket and head over with the entire family so that you can enjoy a day surrounded by the trees.
