Plant a Tree!

Is it really time for New Year’s resolutions again? I’ve got one to add to your list. Plant a tree.

While January isn’t the ideal time to plant a tree you can start planning and commit to plant a tree this spring or fall. Stop in at your local independent garden center to learn about suitable trees for your region and the best planting time. If you don’t have room in your garden, consider planting a tree at a hospital, school, or nursing home. Get your neighborhood association together to plant trees around the community.

And there’re just as many reasons as there are places to plant trees. I can’t think of a better way to honor or remember someone, or celebrate a special occasion, than by planting a tree. It’s because trees play such an important role in our environment, and our daily lives.

This New Year make a resolution to plant a tree. And stick to it! It’s a gift for future generations.

    Planting a tree is exactly what my son and I did for New Years! We put in a new semi-dwarf apple tree. I also donated to the Arbor Foundation to have trees planted in my grandchildren’s name in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest as a Christmas gift. It’s never too early to learn to be stewards of our forests!

    Planting a new tree each year has become a tradition for us now. Thanks Allen!

    Plant a tree for the New Year! My youngest son and daughter-in-law are expecting their first baby in March. After baby showers and gracious hand-me-downs from others, they will have everything they need for the baby. They live in a big old house with a large yard that could use more trees. After reading your article, this Nana and Pa will be planting a tree to welcome the baby and enjoying watching our grandson and the tree grow. Thank you for sharing your gardening expertise and Happy New Year!
