Greenwood Tree Board announces Arbor Day poster contest winners; Greenwood, MI

Greenwood Commonwealth > Archives > Lifestyle > Features > Trees are terrific:
When we think about what trees do for people most of us think about the shade they provide on a hot sunny day or a place to hang a swing for playtime.

As fifth-graders at Greenwood schools learned this Arbor Day, trees do more for us and our environment than we can merely see, such as absorbing carbon dioxide, making oxygen and cooling the air.

The Greenwood Tree Board recognized the environmentally conscious occasion by visiting those students to remind them of the importance of urban forestry and promote the annual fifth-grade poster contest.
