Make a Goal To Plant Trees In Your Neighborhood This Year
Posted Dec 31 2010 3:57pm
This year, why not make a resolution to do something good for your community? Plant more trees like the one in the above photo - a tree located in a forest preserve near Rockford, Illinois which I visited a few years ago. Trees create shade, oxygen, and beauty for neighborhoods across the United States.
According to the Arbor Day Foundation , a 501(c)3 nonprofit conservation and education organization, "We inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees."
Founded in 1972, the centennial of the first Arbor Day
observance in the 19th century, the Foundation has grown to become the
largest nonprofit membership organization dedicated to planting trees,
with over one million members, supporters, and valued partners.
What trees would you like to see spring up in your community? What resources do you have for free trees?
