Happy Arbor Day: A Message from Dan Lambe

By Arbor Day Foundation | April 27, 2018

At the Arbor Day Foundation, planting trees is core to our mission. It’s what we do, and it’s what we’ve always done. As we celebrate National Arbor Day this April, it’s helpful to reflect on all that trees do for us. It’s a reminder of the importance of protecting our forests, our nation’s greatest natural treasures, and beautifying our communities, the places we live, work, and play.

Trees help to bring positive nature-based solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing us today, and we have some serious challenges in front of us.

If ever there was a time to plant trees, now is that time. And what better time to do it than Arbor Day.

Arbor Day is a busy time for the Foundation. We are a part of tree planting events and celebrations from coast to coast. We launched celebratearborday.com, the go-to website for Arbor Day events across the country where you can find an Arbor Day celebration near you or share an event of your own. Thousands of people are planting thousands of trees in their communities this month. Trees that will line our streets and shade our parks.

We invited you to help plant trees this April. We launched a petition on change.org asking each of you to Pledge to Plant a Tree this Arbor Day and leave your mark on your community through trees.

So on National Arbor Day, I want to thank each and every one of you: our members, our partners, and our supporters for helping us advance our mission, plant trees and create positive change on a global scale.

Happy Arbor Day!
