Arbor Day 2016 - Kids, Trees & Community
Arbor Day is a celebration of trees and their importance in our lives. It is also a time to think about what we can do to enhance our local community with trees and education for our youngsters. The very first Arbor Day celebration took place in Nebraska 143 years ago when Julius Sterling Morton proposed a special day for planting trees. He realized that for our own wellbeing, and for that of future generations, we must plant trees to replace the ones we have lost.
- Raise Funds for Your School While Planting Trees
In celebration of Arbor Day 2016, ReLeaf Michigan has partnered with your PTA to help your school
raise funds while enhancing and diversifying your neighborhood’s tree canopy for years to come.
We at ReLeaf Michigan have chosen native trees and shrubs that would have grown in your
neighborhood before it was developed, and are making them available for sale.
- Easy and Affordable
So as to offer affordable easy-to-plant native trees and shrubs, and because some of the plants
can only be transplanted when small, your order will arrive in plastic containers:
with trees arriving at averaging 3 to 5 feet tall, and shrubs 2 to 4 feet tall. These smaller trees
will adapt well and begin to grow much faster with less care than planting larger more expensive
trees - plus you get to buy trees not easily found at most nurseries.
- No Room for Trees? No Problem!
Should you not have room for more trees or shrubs, but would still like to help out,
arrangements have been made for your donated tree or shrub to be planted either on school district
grounds or on public property.
- Note: Quantities are limited. Substitutions may have to be made.
While trees arrive in good condition there is no guarantee of survival.
