"And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf
also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper."

~Psalm 1:3~


This is how the Bible describes a "Godly" man. Strong and wise, like a TREE with roots firmly planted.
One who will not be driven by the wind. One that is not like chaff.

In the year 2011 it will be on Friday ~April 29th, 2011~

National Arbor Day is the last Friday in April, but many states observe Arbor Day on different dates according to
their best tree-planting times. Check the list below to find out when your state or territory observes Arbor Day.
Also listed is each state's official state tree.


Some people plant trees to commemorate special events. For the birth of a child or the death
of a loved one. Because it will grow and last for years. So that they can remember.



Plant a Tree - Happy Arbor Day!

"Arbor Day which has already transplanted itself to every state in the American Union and has even been
adopted in foreign lands... is not like other holidays. Each of those reposes on the past,
while Arbor Day proposes for the future."
----J. Sterling Morton----


Arbor means "tree" in Latin. Arbor Day is a special day that has been set aside for planting and caring
for trees. The first Arbor Day was celebrated in Nebraska on April 10, 1872. It was started by
J. Sterling Morton, a Nebraska newspaper publisher who encouraged Nebraskans to plant trees to
beautify and enrich the treeless state. He offered prizes for the most trees planted; over a
million trees were planted on that first Arbor Day.


Isaiah 65:22 "They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as
the days of a tree [are] the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands."

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Bay tree
named only in Ps. 37:35, Authorized Version. The Hebrew word so rendered is ereh, which simply
means "native born", i.e., a tree not transplanted, but growing on its native soil, and therefore
luxuriantly. If the psalmist intended by this word to denote any particular tree, it may have been
the evergreen bay laurel (Laurus nobilis), which is a native of Palestine. Instead of "like a green
bay tree" in the Authorized Version, the Revised Version has, "like a green tree in its native soil."
