Arbor Day


Did you know Friday was Arbor Day? Per the Arbor Day blog, "Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley was among the 16 organizations and individuals honored with an Arbor Day Award last weekend. He received the inaugural Vision Award, in recognition of his extraordinary work promoting urban and forestland conservation and planting.

The Governor stressed the importance of planting trees in his acceptance speech on Saturday in Nebraska City, recalling the story of the child who asks her grandfather about the best time to plant a tree.

Her grandfather says, “Well, it takes time for those roots to go deep and for branches to spread… and so the most important time to plant a tree is 20 years ago.” And the little girl asks, “Well, when is the next best time to plant a tree?” The grandfather responds:”Right now.”

The WeWOOD Date watch made with 100% natural wood, hypo-allergenic, completely free of toxic chemicals, and a Miyota movement plants one tree for each watch sold. WeWood's tree-planting partner, American Forests, is the nation's oldest non-profit conservation organization that works to protect and restore the environment by planting and caring for trees. Their goal is to plant 100 million trees by 2020. Be in Style and Plant a Tree here:
