It’s April. You know what that means don’t you? Earth Day and environmental awareness events like mad. I’m not saying these are bad things, I’m just saying what about the other 11 months of the year? Oh, don’t mind me, I’m just grumpy this morning.
The Belknap Neighborhood Association along with area neighbors and
Belknap businesses is celebrating Kentucky Arbor Day by giving away 800
seedlings from the Kentucky Division of Forestry to anyone who pledges
to plant and nurse each tree to adulthood. These 12 to 24-inch,
bare-root seedlings of canopy species will mature into 70 to 120-foot
trees – the choices include Oaks (Bur, Shumard and Cherrybark), a mix
of Hickories, Bald Cypress, Persimmon and the Kentucky Coffeetree. Also
available is the Eastern Redbud, The festivities include refreshments
and entertainment along with plenty of information and expert advice
from foresters, arborists, tree huggers, and area naturalists
associated with the Olmsted Parks Conservancy and the UK School of
Agriculture Cooperative Extension.

I love that my neighborhood association is doing this. It certainly makes me less grumpy.
