Festival of the Trees: Reminder

You still have plenty of time to submit your blog posts to share in the Festival of the Trees 6. If you would like to learn more, contact me at jadeblackwater [at] Brainripples [dot] com, or visit the Festival of the Trees coordinating blog!

Also, it's always a great idea to plant trees, and according to the article mentioned at North Country Maturing Gardener, Nobel Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai thinks so too. Of course, Wangari Maathai has always been a strong supporter of tree planting!


  1. The article on Wangari Maathai mentions deforestation....that is something that needs to stop! I've read that it's much more widespread than anyone thought.

  2. Indeed, some of the biggest factors affecting deforestation are the expansion of grazing lands, and the clearing of forest for wood fuel.

    While deforestation does not have a simple solution, the more we gain an awareness of the issue and its effects, the more likely we are to find a viable, sustainable solution.
