Pledge to plant a tree through a worldwide United Nations Environment Programme. The Plant for the Planet: Billion Tree Campaign encourages individuals of all ages, communities, organizations, business and industry, civil society, and governments to pledge to plant trees -- from one tree to millions each -- through their Web site. So far, participants have planted 430,989,735 of the 1,203,544,233 trees pledged. Each person/organization pledging is responsible for the tree planting. All contributing participants will receive a certificate of involvement.

Clever Gardening Technique

Circle of Mulch
For a perfectly circular ring of mulch under a tree canopy, tie a string around the trunk. Hold the string and walk out as far as you want the mulch to extend. Either spray paint a circle as you walk around the tree or attach the string to a spade and cut a 2-inch edge slightly angled toward the bed to hold the mulch.
