Happy Arbor Day!

Today is National Arbor Day, a day created to encourage the planting of new trees and caring for existing ones.  Join into the celebration by planting trees in your yard and community or join a local tree-planting organization.

While visiting the Arbor Day Foundation website, I found a few interesting tidbits of information:

"The net cooling effect of a young, healthy tree is equivalent to ten room-size air conditioners operating 20 hours a day."—U.S. Department of Agriculture

Trees also produce oxygen, reduce carbon dioxide from the air and increase property values.  What is not to love about a tree!

This week we planted a new tree in the yard.  There are also twenty-eight trees started from seed that are growing in my greenhouse anxiously waiting for their day to move outside into the ground.
