I love April. It’s spring time in Texas — the trees are turning green, flowers are blooming, the weather is amazing (fingers crossed) and the tree farm has a smell that I love.

Along with all of that, April also has Earth Day (April 22nd) and National Arbor Day (April 28th). At Fannin Tree Farm, we love celebrating these holidays! The power of trees is amazing. From backyards to tropical rain forests, trees around the world are hard at work providing the necessities of life. Trees clean our air and water, provide habitat for wildlife, connect communities, and support our health and well-being. Arbor Day is a great day to plant a tree at your business, at your home or your local park. On Arbor Day at Fannin Tree Farm, we will be giving away saplings (1 per family) while supplies last.

This is a great month for activities for the kids, as well, to celebrate these holidays inside and outside and read some great books. I have listed just a few fun websites that have some cool activities and book lists as we go into April to celebrate our great earth! I hope you and your family are able to take advantage of this wonderful weather. Get out and enjoy!
