The Forget-Me-Not Garden Club celebrated Arbor Day on Thursday, Dec. 12, by planting a live oak tree near the Henry Timrod School. They were replacing a yellow poplar tree that was lost. Nancy Stewart, the club’s Arbor Day chairman, shared some facts about Arbor Day. She noted that on April 10, 1872, one million trees were planted in the U.S. The effort began in Nebraska City by J. Sterling Morton, and it spread worldwide. What an impact that effort began, she said. Today, the date of Arbor Day celebrations varies according to climate, Nancy added. This conservation effort underscores the importance of trees and encourages people to plant and care for them.
