Gear up for Arbor Day

The great French Marshal Lyautey once asked his gardener to plant a tree. The gardener objected that the tree was slow-growing and would not reach maturity for a hundred years. The Marshal replied, “In that case, there is no time to lose, plant it this afternoon.”

Keeping that thought in mind, many Southwest Ohio Soil and Water Conservation Districts are offering tree seedling sales. You can check out the sales at the following links. Thanks to ODNR Regional Urban Forester Wendi VanBuren for this information.
