“He who plants trees loves others besides himself.”
— Thomas Fuller
With all of the wonderful furniture, tables, dressers, trim and not to mention homes made from wood let us not forget where it comes from.
I live in Nebraska. In central and western Nebraska trees were not always a natural thing. Lewis and Clark called the Sandhills of Nebraska the Great American Desert. You will find that I will come back to this from time to time as I will always appreciate trees. Not only what can be made from them but the beauty they give us.
Nebraska is also the home of the Arbor Day Foundation. https://www.arborday.org/ Christmas is coming soon. A wonderful gift idea is a tree. You can order the tree from the Arbor Day Foundation and they will ship it when the time is right for planting.
Please take the time to look at the Arbor Day Foundation, it is truly rewarding. And keep in mind for those hard to buy for friends and relatives, a tree might be just right.
