Good to hear the students are getting so involved in Arbor Day and other activities, I hope they carry their knowledge and concern for our environment into adulthood. We're losing more and more of our wooded areas here in PG County and at some point we need to stop and ask how this will affect future generations. Besides being just plain pretty, the trees provide shelter for birds and animals, and - oh yeah - they also provide oxygen. Well worth keeping, don't you think?
