"Arbor Day"

Arbor Day is on 4/29/11. If you're a lover of trees like me you may want to pay attention to this special day. Trees play a very important role in our environment. Trees recycle carbon dioxide we breathe out and convert it to oxygen. Trees cleaned the air and make it breathable, as well as provide shelter for animals. Trees give us fruit, seeds, nuts and maple syrup. Trees provide us with shade in the summer. I hug a tree every chance I get.

For in the tree nature of things, if we rightly consider every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver -Martin Luther

There is always Music amongst the trees in the Garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it -Minnie Aumonier

And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, brooks in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything -William Shakespeare

Arbor Day is a day to show your appreciation of trees. Go out and plant a tree or just hug one for me.
