Check out when your state Arbor Day is, many states celebrate on different days depending on the best times of the year to plant trees.
Trees that are planted take many years to grow before they are able to provide shade, and often those who planted them never see the trees fully grown. But that does not stop thoughtful individuals from planting row after row of trees, because they know that the next generation will have plenty of shade to rest under.
