Arbor Day

The Cottonwood (Populus deltoides) -- Kansas' State Tree

The Cottonwood (Populus deltoides) -- Kansas' State Tree

Today, April 24th, is National Arbor Day, and also Kansas Arbor Day. (Not every state – or country — celebrates Arbor Day on the same date. To find out when other states celebrate, see the National Arbor Day Foundation’s map of Arbor Day Dates.) Even though it’s a bit past the optimum time, it’s an excellent day to plant a tree. Better yet, plant a dozen.

For more ideas on how to celebrate National Arbor Day, see NADF’s How to Celebrate Arbor Day.

Here are the national and state winning posters from National Arbor Day Foundation’s annual poster contest:
