There is a second day in April that focuses on the great outdoors and appreciating what mother nature has provided for us. We have Arbor day!
Arbor Day literally translates to “tree day” and originated around 1872 at a time that the state of Nebraska was devoid of any trees. That year, it was said the Nebraskans planted over one million trees, and Arbor Day soon after declared a national holiday. The Unites States is not the only country that celebrates Arbor Day. Most of the world knows what it is and will have their own specific day to celebrate it, however, the U.S. recognizes Arbor Day on the last Friday in April. The overall goal, however, remains the same. We aim to plant, grow and preserve trees so that we might properly take care of our planet.
Anewalt’s is proudly celebrating Arbor Day once again! We will be handing out Scotch Pine Seedlings to anyone in the community who is able and interested in stopping by our shop on Friday, April 30th between 11am-3pm. We will be running a drive thru, similar to last year, to practice social distancing.
If you would like to call ahead to reserve a pine, call our office at 610.916.7070. Or, simply show up throughout the day and receive a pine while our supplies last!
With each pine, we will provide the proper way to care for and plant the seedling, and hopefully, years from now, it will be a large presence in your landscape that you treasure and take pride in the fact that you grew it from a tiny seedling.
We hope to see you on April 30th!
