BOISE, Idaho – People across Idaho can celebrate Arbor Day with free seedlings. 

The Idaho Department of Lands is partnering with the Idaho Forest Products Commission to provide seedlings at IDL offices and businesses across the state. 

Arbor Day, which always falls on the last Friday in April, is a day to inspire people to plant, nurture and celebrate trees. 

“Forests and trees play an important role, providing clean air, removing and store carbon dioxide, sending fresh oxygen into the air, providing habitat for wildlife, clean water through our watersheds, and opportunities for recreation.  63% of Idaho’s water comes from the forests,” the IDL said in a release.
