Happy National Arbor Day! Enjoy Our Slideshow Of Amazing Trees

National Arbor Day is Friday, April 27. It’s a time to celebrate the wonders of nature, and to plan for an even greener future by planting and caring for trees.

Trees are awesome, amazing, and wonderful! And just to get you in the mood, here’s a selection of seven of my favorites.
