|Happy Arbor Day, New Mexico!
New Mexico celebrates its Arbor Day the second Friday of March, so Happy Arbor Day New Mexico!
In 1949, New Mexico selected the Piñon Pine (Pinus edulis) as their state tree. At one time, the Piñon forest covered more than 25% of New Mexico. Needless to say, the tree grows well on dry, rocky soils. : )
