Important! Put “Festival of the Trees” in the subject line of your email

What do you like most about trees? What kinds of trees grow where you live? Why are trees and forests important to you?

Each month we celebrate these and other tree musings with an online celebration hosted by volunteers from around the world. This December we invite you to join us for Festival #66 right here at our blog carnival home.

Our theme is open to all tree-related subjects. We challenge you to think outside the blog: send us a fresh look at an old friend. Need some ideas? Here are five fun ways to take a fresh look at trees:

1)   use chalk to sketch a tree shadow on the sidewalk

2)   visit a local orchard or tree farm

3)   dance with a tree, then try the waltz

4)   sit with the same tree for a few minutes each day

5)   visit a tree or forest you haven’t met in many years

Want some more serious fun? Think of a tree-question you want to answer, plan your own tree-related experiments, and then tell us about your results.

Visit the International Year of Forests website for events to celebrate trees and forests around the world.

Pick a trailhead, wander a bit, and then remember to share your findings with us for the Festival of the Trees 66.
