Question: What does a tree hugger do on Arbor Day?
"Answer: She gets in her hybrid car (Prius) and drives to Will Clayton Blvd to help plant trees!!!
Doesn't that sound like fun. Rain or shine, that is what I am doing tomorrow morning from 8-12. I am w/ a BP [British Petroleum] Team. Billy is supposed to be playing golf, but might end up w/ me if golf gets rained out!" **

***From Plant Answers (link) on the History of TEXAS Arbor Day:
"In 1949, the state legislature adopted a resolution designating the third Friday in January as Texas Arbor Day. That date changed, when, in 1989, the legislature designated the last Friday in April as Texas Arbor Day in order to align the Texas observance with the traditionally observed national Arbor Day." [The article says the first Arbor Day was officially on George Washington's birthday but that law expired in 1949.]" TreeHugger Tree Hugger Photos Humor Arbor Day Family Humour Green
Just a whole lot of Texas still observes Arbor Day in January. January is a much better month than April to plant trees down here.
I am burning as much gasoline (hydrocarbons) as I can to get these new trees the CO2 they need to thrive. We do not have a hybrid because we want to feed more trees with our normal car.
