Today is Arbor Day, a special day set aside for planting and celebrating trees. Arbor Day got its start in Nebraska, a place not known for its forests or trees. But it’s now celebrated nationwide, including here in Wisconsin, a place rich with state and national forests. Commentator Candy Andrews has visited all of them, and she shares one of her favorite Wisconsin forests.
