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.
