Fall is a great time to plant trees. There is probably nothing better an individual can do for the environment than plant a tree. Aside from their beauty, trees are the lungs of our planet and native species are a vital strand in the web of life, providing habitat for native insects, birds and wildlife. Tree planting is a great project for Scouts, 4-H and other youth groups as well as civic clubs and neighborhood associations.
The Oklahoma Forestry Service makes obtaining seedlings adapted to Oklahoma about as easy as it can be. They just opened their online store for the fall and are taking orders to be shipped or picked up in January.
