Arbor Day is this Friday, April 27th. The Arbor Day Holiday was founded im 1872, by J. Sterling Morton in Nebraska City, Nebraska. The Arbor Day Foundation began September 3, 1971 with a mission “to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees.” The Arbor Day Foundation is the world’s oldest and largest tree-planting organization. Its million members plant millions of trees every year.
Tree planting can result from many objectives. Maybe a quiet retreat is what’s wanted… a place of beauty and solitude away from the noise and bustle of the city. Maybe a landowner needs to control soil erosion or to keep a favorite trout stream or lake running clear. Recreation may be the goal. Or maybe just needed shade or protection from harsh weather. My in-laws, growing up in South Dakota in the “dirty thirties” remember the dust storms rolling across the plains and how important tree belts were for stopping the blowing dirt. Tree planting is very important to our planet’s survival.
