Yes, Arbor day is all about planting trees and other plants such as bushes and shrubs. And yes there is a difference between the two but only by texture. Shrubs are more of a wood. So they’re tiny trees. And bushes are more of a steam. like a Rose bush. But even then, a rosebush can have a “woody” stock.

Arbor Day was created by a man named Julius Sterling Morton but only in Nebraska. He manage to plant one million trees on April 10, 1872. Birdsey Northrop was the one to spread it worldwide starting in Japan. He was so well with introducing it there that he took it to Australia, Canada, and Europe.

So our Academic science class volunteered to plant over 30 plants April 29, 2016 at Sunshine Park. We planted Dog wood, Maple, Rose bushes, some fir trees, Pine tress, Oak, and a few others. In the picture above are some dog woods that have already been planted and a rose bush waiting to be planted.

It was a hard day of work but was worth every effort put into it. Help support Arbor day and visit this website to learn more about Arbor Day @ https://www.arborday.org/celebrate/
