Arbor Day: Plant Your Own Tree

Arbor Day encourages people to plant trees and be environmentally conscious. The first Arbor Day celebration was held in Nebraska on April 10, 1872 with an estimated 1,000,000 trees planted. Arbor Day is celebrated on the last Friday in April in Nebraska, but dates may vary for other areas depending on climate and planting conditions.

Trees are such a wonderful thing. On a hot summer day, they give us shade. A walk through the woods can be so relaxing. Sitting under a tree and reading a book is still an enjoyable pastime. Trees give us food like apples, oranges, pears, and a variety of nuts like pecans and walnuts.

Wood from trees is used in the construction of our homes, furniture, and so many other things. Paper products like notebooks, envelopes, and even toilet paper come from trees. They help stop erosion and put oxygen into the air.

Stop and think how many ways a tree has touched your life today.

Trees are a natural resource that needs to be conserved and replenished. Planting a tree on Arbor Day can help. The Arbor Day Foundation has more information on their website:

We also encourage everyone to plant a tree if you can. If every member plants one tree, we’d have millions planted and we’d beat that 1,000,000 mark set in Nebraska back in 1872.

At CashCrate, you can also plant another tree of sorts: A Money Tree. There are many ways to earn here. At CashCrate, you can plant the seeds for a residual income.

Happy Arbor Day everyone.
