Tour the ‘Forests of Guam’ in this Arbor Day video from CNAS
It’s Arbor Day on Guam – a time to celebrate the island’s forests, plant trees, and learn about their critical importance in the local ecosystem.
The College of Natural & Applied Sciences invites all to learn more about the forests on the island through a “Forests of Guam” video from the college’s Western Pacific Tropical Research Center.
Produced as a video submission to the 15th World Forestry Conference and filmed by Tim Rock, “Forests of Guam” takes viewers on a tour of the different forest types on the island. The video showcases Guam’s beauty as well as the environmental pressures threatening the forests today and the dedicated individuals working to overcome these difficulties.
Guam’s Arbor Day was launched in 1973 by Public Law 12-53. While the national Arbor Day is celebrated in April, Guam celebrates its own Arbor Day in October when there is substantial rain to assist the growth of newly planted trees.
