A Tree for Arbor Day

The children’s play area at CHC/SEK’s Pittsburg North Clinic received a new tree today donated and planted by Heritage Tractor, as part of their “25 Trees for 25 Years” anniversary celebration. 

Heritage Tractor representative Justin Fortman said the company planted 25 trees in their store communities, along with a commemorative plaque for each between April 20th and 28th, as Earth and Arbor Days are celebrated.

Arbor Day originated in Nebraska on April 10, 1872 when the Secretary of Agriculture under President Grover Cleveland recognized the need for more trees in the Great Plains, where the landscape had been largely stripped of its forests due to agriculture and settlement.   

Today, Arbor Day has had a significant impact on the environment, helping to promote the planting of millions of trees around the world.
