One of our liner suppliers, J. Frank Schmidt Nursery in Oregon said it first… Trees are the Answer! And we couldn’t agree more!
Trees really are the answer, and as Green Industry professionals it is our job to make sure our customers and our community knows that! There are many ways to share the great news about the benefits of trees to our communities. We put together a few resources that we often share. Click below for links to some pdf files that you are welcome to use & share:
We also put together a fun video slideshow of some of our tree plantings with kids over the years. Check out our ARBOR DAY VIDEO for a look at some of our plantings. We made the video on animoto.com. Videos are really easy to make on their site & cost only $3! If you are looking for a way to share photos from some of your community events or to showcase tree projects, that website is a great resource.
Another great local resource in Illinois is the Morton Arboretum. We found lots of great tree facts & links on their website – check it out at http://www.mortonarb.org/learn-experience/educators/arbor-day-classroom
Finally, the official “Trees are the Answer” people at J. Frank Schmidt Nursery in Oregon have a great website full of tree info – check it out at www.jfschmidt.com/treesaretheanswer/
However you choose to celebrate the year, have fun & Happy Arbor Day!
