Excerpt from Ornamental Trees and Shrubbery

Arbor Day in its broad significance has far outgrown the thought of its founders. In its beginning it signified little more than the planting of a tree. Today it is closely related to the whole "out-of-door" movement.

The great improvement in the appearance of school grounds during the last few years has been a direct result of the observance of Arbor Day. Only a few years ago in our larger villages and cities little thought was given to the grounds surrounding the school. Today, however, there are few schools in the State, even in the rural communities, where there is not a real pride in the school surroundings.

Such pride is proper. There is as real educational value in well-kept grounds as there is in appropriate decorations in the schoolroom. School boys and girls will become stronger and better men and women through the almost unconscious influence of the beautiful in nature.

Arbor Day should be a day of beginnings, which should last through the entire year. If a tree or shrub is planted it must be given care. The setting of the roots in the soil is only the first step. The necessary watering, the placing of guards and the watching against injurious insects and other enemies give opportunity for the exercise of constant, intelligent thought. Without continuing throughout the year the work begun on Arbor Day, the whole effort is lost and the lessons of real worth forgotten.

The question is often asked, "What trees shall we plant?" Select the trees of your own locality. It is a most interesting study to search out the important species in any given section of the State and to note their habits. The list in many cases will be long and will include many ornamental trees. Such excursions might well be made the nature study work during the spring months and also furnish excellent material for classroom exercises.
