The Arbor Day Foundation Organization Promotes and Celebrates Trees

 Since its founding in 1972, the Arbor Day Foundation (ADF) has been steadfast in  its mission to "plant, nurture, and celebrate trees."  

 The organization, with founder John Rosenow still at the helm, is active in  educating the public about the beauty and significance of trees in our world  and in our lives.  

 Headquartered in Nebraska, ADF works hard to promote the positive benefit trees  have on the environment, in our communities, and even on our children. Through  numerous programs, ADF enables thousands of towns and cities across the United  States to follow its mission to plant, celebrate, and nurture trees.  

 "John Rosenow is tireless in his mission to inspire people," says Woodrow  Nelson, director of communications for ADF. "I think that culture permeates  throughout the entire organization. Everyone is very true to the idea that we  should get the word out that it's a great thing for people to plant trees."  

 Programs Plant Trees and Hope

 In addition to offering membership status and benefits to nearly a million  members nationwide, ADF also sponsors many programs and initiatives that aid in  carrying out its mission. One of the biggest initiatives is a comprehensive  program for children called Nature Explore, which helps children develop  connections with the natural world as a regular part of their healthy growth  and development. Disconnection from nature is leading to increases in problems  such as childhood obesity, dislike and even fear (often media-induced) of the  outdoors, and increased reliance on behavior-regulating medications, according  to ADF.
