“I never before knew,

The full value of trees.

Under them,

I breakfast, dine,

Write, read, walk,

And receive my company.”


Thomas Jefferson

Jefferson wrote these words

Two hundred years ago at dawn

And since the time of his revelation

Over half the world’s forests are gone

We must somehow stop their destruction

Since Earth’s trees provide us with fresh air

They stop soil erosion, and they prevent floods

And, they provide habitat for animals everywhere

Arbor Day, A Holiday for Trees, was first proposed

Back in 1872, by Nebraska Pioneer J. Sterling Morton

He felt this nation needed many more magnificent trees

Thousands were planted, when his ‘Tree Idea’ was begun

But like so many other passionate ideas to enhance our lives

Arbor Day, like Earth Day, seems to be an idea from the past

Please join the movement, to help return our planet to its glory

Please plant a tree or two, leaving your own legacy that will last


“He that planteth a tree is a servant of God,

He provideth a kindness for many generations,

And faces that he hath not seen, shall bless him.”


Henry Van Dyke

Thanks dear Ed. for your information I am starting a green peace project soon in my city. We try to link environment to human rights, migration and citizenship. we plant trees to each other on human rights basis so that there will be peace and love among the inhabitants of the city and our city will remain green and beautiful at all times while reducing co2 at a considerable low level. Great poem.

Indeed, sitting, walking, cycling in the forest always inspires and enchants.
A friend of mine has just lost her baby, so we planted a tree dedicated to her, so that it will grow and be a living memory.
How ugly is a petrified landscape, devoid of trees.

Since from time to time I think of myself as
brother to the tree, I applaud your desire, Ed,
to protect and preserve our majestic trees.

I actually planted two trees in my backyard on Arbor Day in 1990. They are now both towering giant Eucalyptus varities. They are also nicknamed "widowmakers" because they shed very large limbs on occasion. Planting is good but pay attention when you do. Patrick
