Over 135 years ago, J. Sterling Morton founded Arbor Day because he saw the need to set aside a special day each year for planting trees and caring for them. Celebrating Arbor Day is a great way to teach the public the importance of keeping our environment growing and healthy.
What we do to our environment not only affects the current generation, but every other generation after that. It is important to teach our children and young adults the importance of planting trees and sustainable living because in the end, that’s the key to creating a healthy environment for all.
Hermes Landscaping encourages all of the greater Kansas City community to get out and plant a tree today! If you are interested in finding out how you can plant trees and volunteer in your community, visit www.arbordaynow.org for more information.
