National Arbor Week 2014

National Arbor Week 2014

Celebrate Arbor this week 1st - 7th September and plant a tree in your community or organisation!

Arbor Week is celebrated every year in the first week of September. It is a favoured Environmental Day, because it is a simple enough day to get a school or community involved in something which will be able to benefit so many. It's a great feeling passing a tree and knowing that you are responsible for its presence. Kids love getting their hands dirty when planting trees, and that's a good a sight as any!!

When trying to think of all the advantages of trees for this blog, I couldn't help smile to myself. From my earliest childhood and attempting to climb every tree (no matter how impossible), to angsty teenage years and carving hearts into the bark, to enjoying a cold beverage on a picnic blanket now, trees tend to share the best moments with us. 

Let me stop being nostalgic and encourage you to go out and plant a tree this Arbor Week. Who knows, someone might end up thinking nostaligically about your tree, even when you are no longer around to enjoy it yourself!
