Up to this year we had never done anything special for Arbor Day. Arbor Day is "plant a tree" day--a nice complement to Earth Day, which occurs a few days earlier. As we do every year, we are planting trees here at the farm, however, we have never provided our Christmas Tree customers an opportunity to plant a tree of their own. Everyone who purchased a tree last Christmas received a "Cut one, plant one" certificate for a free tree on Arbor Day weekend.
Shown are some of the potted Blue Spruce, Fraser Fir, and Balsam Fir three and four year old transplants we gave away this Arbor Day weekend. We had a great response and are already looking forward to our "2nd annual Arbor Day Free Tree Weekend."
