DNR: Celebrate Arbor Month by creating a healthy yard


The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) reminds people that May is Arbor Month in Minnesota and Arbor Day, April 27, marks the beginning of an entire month of celebrating trees.

This year, Minnesota's Arbor Month theme is "Creating a Healthy Community Forest." The idea is to encourage planting a wide variety of native trees to create a diverse community forest that is more resilient to large-scale devastation from tree pests.
