Happy Arbor Week, California!

California is home to the world’s tallest tree and it is home to the world’s largest tree (by volume). With so many giants within its borders, maybe that is why California needs a whole week, March 7th – March 14th, to celebrate Arbor Day.

California’s State Tree is the “California Redwood”– both Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) and Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) are recognized. California is home to 152 Tree Cities and it just so happens to have a Silo Tree as well.

    We do like our trees, from the redwood to the sycamore to the many, many varieties of oak…
