Gather your ribbons, flags, and shovels! The Festival of the Trees 58 honors Arbor Day celebrations and other real-world tree festivals. Our returning host is Dr. Georgia Silvera Seamans of the local ecologist, a blog of “wide ranging urban ecological ruminations.” Georgia previously hosted Festivals #33 which covers the tree gamut (silo trees, tree top adventures, anyone?) and #40 which explores the innumerable benefits of trees.

This month we invite you to share the news about tree festivals, Arbor Day tree plantings, and other celebrations of trees and forests. Tree-lighting ceremonies, chain-saw competitions, logging shows, wood crafts, tree-planting events, and giddy woodland frolics are all welcome for a complimentary booth at the Festival of the Trees 58.

Remember you can send us links to news about tree celebrations other than your own. Be sure to submit the complete permalink to your article/post/media so we can include it.

Contact us to volunteer to host an edition of the Festival of the Trees at your blog.
