Celebrate Earth Day.

EARTH DAY is today.  And Arbor Day is next Friday, April 29.  You and your kids can show your appreciation for our beautiful planet in several ways.

  1. Join the movement to plant 7.8 BILLION trees by 2020 – one tree for every person on the planet.  Go to http://www.earthday.org   for complete details.

2. 50 MILLION trees have been planted by the Arbor Foundation in America’s 155 National Forests over the last 2 decades.  You can plant a tree of your own or give a seedling to someone else.  Or, donate $25.00 and Arbor Day Foundation will add 25 more trees to our landscape.  Visit  http://www.arborday.org

3.  You can check out some fun ideas for celebrating Arbor Day or Earth Day at:  http://tinyurl.com/j9fev58

4.  Go to a local park or playground and pick up litter and items that can be recycled.  Also, check out PREVIOUS POSTS on this blog for other earth-friendly ideas.    Be kind to trees.  They make life on planet Earth possible.

    • Thanks for this link Teresa. I HATE that tree. Not only does it wreak havoc to the environment…it has a noxious smell. The blossoms smell like rotten meat when in full bloom. Who would want such a hideous smell engulfing their yard? I have a crab apple that is glorious!

      • I’m so glad you don’t like Bradfords either! Yes, they really do stink. They’re all along our city streets. Ugh…obviously the city planners did not consult any true arborists. Crab apples are lovely! So pretty and the birds like the fruits (I want one to make crab apple jelly with). 🙂
