Coffee Break: Arbor Day

Happy Arbor Day, from Producer Anna's backyard trees that are blooming yet maybe mostly dead. (Anna Weggel | The Current)

Happy Arbor Day! It's a day that's been observed since 1594 and varies each year depending on the climate and suitable planting season but lands today this year.

Did you know that we have 53 native tree species in Minnesota that cover 17.4 million acres of forestland? Almost one-third of Minnesota is forested.

Arbor day is a day when people are meant to plant trees, but if you can't plant a tree today, you can at least enjoy listening to some tree-themed songs.

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear for Arbor Day?
