Thanks to the JOY CARDIN show on WPR this morning with guest, Bob Gensemer, a certified arborist with Tree Care Specialists in Mequon, I was reminded that today is ARBOR DAY! Thanks to JOY and BOB! Did YOU already know that today is ARBOR DAY?

I urge you to make time to hear the podcast of the show using this link to Joy Cardin Show. You will see the link to the audio archives. The podcast should be online later today.

In the meantime, I reviewed the history and development of Arbor Day reading the Wikipedia feature article, "Arbor Day."

And then, I checked out the website for Arbor Day Foundation.

The Arbor Day Foundation sponsors the "TREE CITY USA" movement. I am sure YOU know that JANESVILLE is a TREE CITY and has been on the list for 9 years, according to the information on the website.

Are you planning to plant a tree?

Here we go...
