‘Now Is the Time for Trees’ Book Encourages Public to Plant Trees – Nebraska City News Press

Aimed at educating readers about the power trees have on people and the planet, a new book, “Now is the Time for Trees,” inspires readers to join the tree-planting movement while offering ways to get involved.

The book, released today, is co-authored by Dan Lambe, CEO of the Arbor Day Foundation, and Lorene Edwards Forkner. He shares stories of iconic trees from around the world, planting tips and personal tree stories from well-known people, including award-winning journalist and news anchor, Soledad O’Brien; YouTube creator, Jimmy Donaldson – better known as MrBeast; Salesforce President and CEO Marc Benioff; and much more.

“There has never been more urgency to plant trees than there is today and that is what this book is about – being part of the tree planting movement,” said Lambe. “This is the perfect book for someone who wants to do more and be part of a positive change.” The book is released as the Arbor Day Foundation celebrates its 50th anniversary. Since its inception, the organization has helped plant nearly 500 million trees and has become the largest nonprofit tree planting organization.

The book is available wherever books are sold. Lambe will travel across the country throughout the year to share her book with current and future tree planters while announcing the Arbor Day Foundation’s next tree planting initiative.
