The Arbor Day Foundation is all about the continuity of the earth’s trees and preventing deforestation by preserving trees. They run numerous programs to promote awareness and urge people to action. There are many eco-friendly organizations and movements internationally, but the Arbor Day Foundation has met with unparalleled success. Their programs span all spectrums and cultures, uniting people in the quest to save our planet.
One of the services the Foundation offers is that they sell trees at discounted prices. The online store features an extensive selection, with everything from fir trees to Red Maples and beyond. While simple in concept, this is the first step in offering people with a way to plant more trees – selling them at low prices. This is similar to Rubberecycle’s method of working to save the planet by selling recycled rubber mulch at low prices.
The Arbor Day Foundation goes so far as to offer significant rewards for joining the program: ten free trees for personal use, or ten trees to be planted in the nation’s forests. To choose personal trees, users merely have to enter their zip code for a list of trees that will thrive in their area.
Among the many services they offer, the Arbor Day Foundation features a ‘What Tree is That’ tool, which helps everyone from adults to children identify the tree they are interested in, and its significant features. ‘What Tree is That’ is also available in a mobile version, as well as pocket field guides. It’s great for everyone from the young student to the professional arborist.
The Arbor Day site covers everything one would need to know about planting a tree. There is a link to a list of online tree forums, the Arbor Day Foundation blog, tree care tips, tree-related publications, and more. Also available is information and inspiration to create a backyard woods, as well as detailed guides and the means to do it.
The Arbor Day Foundation is a model of quiet efficiency, honoring Arbor Day and our planet. Rubberecycle is viewed in the same light, offering consumers with recycled rubber mulch that is well priced, practical, easy to install, and improves lifestyles. What’s there not to like? As the support for Arbor Day and its foundation grows, it’s important to keep in mind the importance of safe and eco-friendly rubber mulch as summer nears and playgrounds are revamped.
