I don’t agree much with Nebraska Senator Mike Johanns, but we do agree on one thing: we are very proud of the Nebraska tradition of tree planting and that Arbor Day started here in Nebraska City, Nebraska!
Here is the e-mail greeting Senator Johanns sent out today:
The link in the greeting, of course, won’t work, so I’ve attached on below:
If I told you there is a place called the Nebraska National Forest, if you don’t live here and have an image of the state as some vast flat hay meadow, you’d probably laugh. Yet there is such a place, and it is a wonderful recreation place for hunters, hikers, birders, and others who enjoy the out-of-doors.
Plant a tree!
