It has been over 135 years since J. Sterling Morton founded Arbor Day. His simple idea of setting aside a special day for tree planting is now more important than ever

Thanks, i forgot about it. Siy house in the USA has 102 trees, and my House in London has 3 mini trees and can't take any more, I've redeemed credit for 1o trees, and will play answer4earth (http://www.answer4earth.com) until I reach 2 days today (my target is 1).

Happy Arbor Day. I'd plant a few trees, but I can't get my rewards to load so I can redeem anything!!!

Ty Cal. A little ramble....Last fall i just let seeds from huge sky high pines, fir, blue spruce grow in the gardens along the street. I think Arbor Day is a good time to go out and get them into containers to plant where needed and they can grow better.

Also, can plant a tree on Care2 . . .Plant a Tree [for Arbor Day]

One of the kings of England (I forget which one) used to carry a supply of acorns in his pockets, and planted them as he went around. We now have many great and ancient oak trees all over our country. Many trees can be planted as easily, but are unsuitable for ordinary gardens because they grow too big. So, in the autumn collect conkers, acorns, beechnuts etc. and pop them in the soil in the countryside where it is suitable.

I try to plant at least one every day. I couldn't imagine a world without trees. I could but I certainly wouldn't want to live there. What a majestic entity that give us so much. Without trees we don't exist on this planet.

Thanks for this, Cal. I 'spend' most of my butterfly points on planting trees. I wonder where they are. It would be nice to go and see them one day.

And thanks to John for this: http://www.answer4earth.com
