The Memory of Trees



    Do you know what today is?  Yes, the day of the Royal Wedding, but what else? It is Arbor Day. The day to remember and celebrate trees.  Here are a few things to think about or do to celebrate.
  1. Hug your favorite tree.
  2. Listen to Enyas "The Memory of Trees".
  3. Remember we owe everything to trees.
  4. They built our homes, our bridges, our wagons, our boats, our paper, and pencils.
  5. Trees keep us warm.
  6. They let us bring them inside and decorate them.
  7. Trees clean our air.
  8. They are home and food for wildlife.
  9. They provide food for us.
  10. Trees are beautiful to look at.
  11. They give us shade.
  12. We picnic under them, or read books, or take a nap.
  13. People have carved hearts in their bark.
  14. We sit or sleep on them.
  15. We eat our meals on them.
  16. We should love and care for them.
  17. Plant a tree in your yard or neighborhood.
