What to Do for Arbor Day 2016 Wichita Falls Texoma TX

Planting trees. It’s more than something you take part in or witness when you’re in grade school, it’s a way of life. As trees wither and die, or are knocked down by lightning or other natural causes, it’s up to us to plant more to replace them. Because as cool as it would be to live among trees that can speak like Treebeard in the “Lord of the Rings” series, in reality trees need some help from us to get in the ground. And putting a new tree in the soil, whether it’s at a civic event or in our own backyards, creates a very satisfying feeling. You’re providing a place for animals to live, for vegetation to grow, and for you to find shade on a sweltering summer day. What better time to do so than for Arbor Day, which falls on April 29 in 2016?

We’ll look at what to do to commemorate Arbor Day 2016 in the Wichita Falls TX area, which includes the Texoma region and area cities like Burkburnett. Whether you like to get your hands dirty and do your own gardening, or you would rather someone plant the tree for you, or if you’d just like to head outside and enjoy nature, we’ve got something for everyone.
