April 30th is Arbor Day. According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, Julius Sterling Morton created the first Arbor Day in 1872. Arbor Day is about planting and growing a variety of trees, and the library is here to help celebrate trees by offering information and resources on them.

Let’s start with a library guide, Environmental Studies, and a few books: Trees in trouble : wildfires, infestations, and climate changeThoreau and the language of trees, and Interwoven : junipers and the web of being. 

Plus here is a list of websites to research as you enjoy Arbor Day:

Enjoy all the trees you encounter today.
