Students at Brandon Elementary in Lufkin got a lesson about trees.
It is all part of the 2006 Arbor Day celebration. Each year a school is picked to host the ceremony, this year it was Brandon. They are learning more about preserving trees and how important they are to our environment. Young students are learning that they can help by planting more trees.
The state's official Arbor Day holiday is the last Friday in April.
