Trees are Terrific...in all Shapes and Sizes!
The Delaware Forest Service invites all public and private schools, grades K-5 to participate in the
2013 Arbor Day Poster Contest and Annual Free Seedling Giveway.
This year’s theme, Trees are Terrific…in all Shapes and Sizes!is designed to increase knowledge about the importance of tree diversity in our community forests.Trees come in all shapes and sizes, producing a vast array of fruits, flowers, leaves, and seeds. A diverse community forest is a healthier forest that attracts a variety of wildlife and is more visually stimulating. Awareness of the difference between tree species helps in selcting the proper tree to plant in a given location based on site conditions, temperature and soil. Increasing student awareness is the first step toward appreciation of a healthy, diverse community forest.
