Arbor Day Focuses Public On What Trees Mean To Us

The first ceremony was over the noon hour on Friday in downtown Scottsbluff's 18th Street Plaza.

Third-grade ambassadors, representing Concord Elementary School, Forest Elementary School, Heywood Elementary School, Hook Elementary School, Kyle Elementary School, Miami Montessori School, and Overfield School, presented various tree-related facts, poems, and writings with those in attendance. In a odd turn of events, Morton's statute comes to life. When she finished, yet another tree was added to those totals when foresters put in a brand new tree at Wellesley Park. He asked students in general about the importance and role of trees, then pointed to individuals for answers.

His efforts paid off with support from the Nebraska Horticultural Society.

Carol Horner with the Rotary Club explained that the global Rotary mission this year was for each of the organization's 34,000 clubs worldwide plant a tree. And from Nebraska, the observance has since spread across the globe.

A broken branch might have been the seminal moment of Pottsville's Arbor Day festivities Friday at Charles Baber Cemetery.

"He made Arbor Day to promote replanting following deforestation, and to plant up treeless areas", Jones said.

Though not as well known as the other environmental holiday in April (Earth Day), it serves as an important reminder that trees are pretty important - and we should be planting more of them rather than hacking them down.

Heritage trees were spotlighted at Piedmont's annual Arbor Day celebration held April 19 at the city's community center. "We want to create a place where people want to be".

"That was easy", Horner said of choosing the park.

And a lot of the funding used to replant trees has been used to fight the wildfires. "And we're here in handsome, but rainy, West Capitol Park". People often plant them too deep to keep them from blowing over. "Joe's dedication is summed up in Nelson Henderson's quote: "The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit". Lane says that's consistent with the Midwest Urban Tree Index, which also found maples as the most common type, making up an average of 48 percent of public trees surveyed in 27 different Midwestern communities.

Now that both of them are retired, they enjoy contributing to a number of organizations for community betterment.
