Celebration Of Love Of Trees, Forests and Woodlands | Arbor Day

"For in the true nature of things,if we rightly consider,
every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver."

~Martin Luther (1483-1546)

I couldn't agree more with the Monk; trees are truly precious!

The tree shown above is known as 'Methuselah', is a 4,850 year old
Bristlecone Pine - one of the oldest trees on Earth!

Trees are beautiful and amazing, and we need to find more ways 

to preserve and be good stewards to them.
They are the the helpful cleansing 'organs' of the earth's eco-biome.
 Learn why we should plant trees.

Happy Arbor Day!
Please consider to plant a tree today (or over the weekend!)

Have some arboreal fun and view the slideshow tour of the world's oldest trees!
And hope you'll plant one (or ten) of your own.
