In honor of Arbor Day (April 25 this year), take a few minutes over the weekend to plant a tree. It doesn’t even have to be in your own yard. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not suggesting that you sneak into your neighbor’s messy yard, but if you don’t have a yard of your own or have no room in your landscape there are other ways you can grow a tree.
You can give one (or several) to someone who does have a yard. (I just gave one to my MIL last week.) Or you can plant a tree in one of the country’s national forests through the Arbor Day Foundation. Every year these forests are damaged by wildfires and just a one dollar donation replaces one of the lost trees.
Or here’s a really easy way to plant a tree that I found on GreenisUniversal.com. Send an e-tree to a friend for $1 and Mokugift will work with Sustainable Harvest International to get a real tree planted.
Happy Arbor Day.
