Arbor Day Foundation Has Planted 20 Percent of Its 100 Million Tree Goal

By

If you thought Earth Day was the only environmental holiday this week, think again, Earth-lovers. The last Friday in April marks Arbor Day, meaning that this year, the holiday falls today, Friday, April 26. In honor of the annual holiday, which began way back in 1872, the Arbor Day Foundation is launching its Time for Trees campaign, which is a commitment to plant 100 million trees by 2022.

As explained in an email that the Arbor Day Foundation sent Green MattersTime for Trees plans to plant the trees in various communities, cities, and forests all over the world by 2022, which will mark the 150th anniversary of the first Arbor Day. And when we say various, we mean various. The foundation will plant trees everywhere from tropical rain forests to California's national forests to areas recovering from things like natural disasters, disease, and development.
