Introduction

Marvel at our planet's incredible biodiversity this National Tree Day on July 28th! This day was first established in 1872 by J. Sterling Morton, an American pioneer who sought to encourage individuals and groups to plant trees, highlighting their critical importance as the world's largest plants and as components of our ecosystem. Trees play an integral role in providing shade, improving air quality, preventing erosion, and providing a home for various species. Join us as we branch out and celebrate the remarkable gift of trees by planting a seed for a greener future and nurturing our planet's precious lungs! There's no better time than now to let your love for trees take root!
