"He who plants a tree plants a hope." This photographic poster illustrates the quote by Lucy Lurcom and could be useful for National Tree Week or Arbor Day.
Arbor Day is celebrated in the United States and in many different countries across the world. Dates vary according to the climate and season but the most common date is the last Friday in April, which this year falls on 28th April.
In the UK we have National Tree Week instead, which this year will be from 25th November to 3rd October.
Arbor Day is all about trees! It's a great excuse to get out and look at the trees around you, learn a little bit about them, find out what you can do to help preserve and nourish them, and even plant a tree or two or three!
