Florida state Arbor Day

I think this coming Friday, Jan. 18, is Florida’s state arbor day, if I’m not mistaken. I haven’t seen anything about it in the news, but I wrote it on my calendar and thought I’d mention it.

A couple years ago, The Florida Department of Environmental Protection recommended planting native Florida trees. That’s what my family plans to do to replace some trees that didn’t make it through Wilma — more than two years ago! I know, I know — we’re way behind. I guess we were just hoping some of the trees would pull through, but they didn’t.
