As we know one of the best ways to reduce climate change is to plant trees.

    In years past schools used to celebrate Arbor Day by planting a handful of trees in their communities. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if each of our communities would take one day each year to plant trees on school properties, church lands, in business zones where so many old stock trees were destroyed, fairgrounds, home properties, and so on.         

    If you agree with this idea get serious and put together groups of people and begin planning now where you want to plant and which trees would be best for your growing zones.

    Also order up those trees so they are ready when you are to plant.     

    Let’s all do what we can to restore what we have lost over the years. Put pictures in the paper and on line with your stories. We love to hear them.
