Summary: "The Arbor Day Foundation will celebrate its 150th anniversary in April 2022, and this book will be timed to coincide with that noteworthy milestone. Now more than ever, its mission to engage homeowners to actually get out and plant trees is critical to mitigate carbon in our atmosphere, and as their wildly successful Time for Trees campaign in late 2019 showed, CEOs and celebrities from around the world believe Arbor Day remains not only relevant but look to it for leadership, and have also given it financial support as never before. Part inspiration (by showing some of their most successful endeavors from the past-some of which have shaped the very character of our nation) and part call to action (by giving readers all of the information they need to plant the best trees for their own yards), this book will be at once a celebration of one of our country's most enduring charities and a manual for how to DIY add trees at home"--
