We started planting trees for Arbor Day with local schools 20 years ago when our daughter was a youngster at MVK Grade School. We had so much fun planting with the kids & teaching them about trees that the tradition has continued ever since. Every spring we plant at MVK Grade School along with several other area schools. We enjoy teaching the kids about the benefits of trees and letting them dig in dirt to plant a tree at their school. We will be planting at our local school, MVK Friday, April 28 to commemorate the best holiday of the year – ARBOR DAY!
We also love to celebrate Earth Day! This year, Earth Day is Saturday, April 22. We will be planting trees and teaching about their benefits to kids at Marseilles Elementary. We can’t wait to dig in the dirt with the kids!
At SGN Trees, we grow healthy trees, deep roots, and strong communities. With deep roots in the local community, we are always looking for opportunities to share our knowledge and passion for trees when needed. The benefits of trees are countless. Here are some facts we have gathered up over the years about the Social, Economic, & Environmental Benefits of Trees. Trees benefit us and our communities in so many different ways. Help us share this knowledge and feel free to use this list to further educate your community about trees!
Here are a few more links to articles about our plantings at schools. It’s fun to remember the kids & trees over the years!
We thought it would also be fun to take a look back at our Arbor Day plantings through the years. Enjoy! You can also see more pics of the fun plantings in our ARBOR DAY PHOTO GALLERY. Finally, you can also learn more at Arbor Day website https://www.arborday.org/
Here are a few pics from the planting last year and some favorites from the past:
