Let's Plant a Tree

Planting Trees Is Easy and Fun.
The young trees we plant are called saplings. If you were a tree, you would be a sapling.

Be Careful Where You Plant!
Trees need lots of room to grow. Look up. Look down. Look all around. Will your tree have enough room?

If you plant a tree now, you can watch it grow for years and years.
