Welcoming new affiliate The Arbor Day Foundation

Uprooted and overturned dead piñon tree.

Beer may have been involved: This dead piñon tree was flipped upside down by off-road cyclists in a public-use area near Santa Fe, NM. Pine-boring beetles are decimating the pine tree populations of the US Rocky Mountains, resulting in dead trees throughout the West.

I would like to welcome The Arbor Day Foundation to the list of affiliated merchants on this site.

This international movement to plant trees and conserve nature has the motto, “We inspire people to plant, nurture and celebrate trees.” The organization was founded in 1972, the centennial year of the first Arbor Day, the grassroots tree-planting and conservation movement founded by J. Sterling Morton of Nebraska. Growing up in Nebraska, I remember many Arbor Day tree-planting ceremonies and frequently visited the J. Sterling Morton house museum, dedicated to the legacy of this visionary man.

As a native Nebraskan and nature-loving artist, I think the mission of The Arbor Day Foundation is well worth supporting. If you would like to buy trees or other products that will support The Arbor Day Foundation and its conservation and outreach programs, please click the link at the bottom of this post or in my sidebar to do your shopping. For every purchase you make through this site, I will receive a small commission that will help me to pay for the expense of running an independent website.
