“While most holidays celebrate something that has already happened and is worth remembering, Arbor Day represents a hope for the future. The simple act of planting a tree represents a belief that the tree will grow to provide us with clean air and water, cooling shade, habitat for wildlife, healthier communities, and endless natural beauty – all for a better tomorrow.” – from ArborDay.org
We celebrated Arbor Day on April 27 by bagging 200 Kousa Dogwood saplings and delivering them to 5th-graders a four elementary schools in Winston-Salem.
Our hope for the future is two-fold: that these students will learn about the joys of planting and growing a tree; and that these trees will bring joy to those around where they are planted.
