How about we replace it with 'plant a tree day'. In fact, replace all holidays with plant a tree day and the world will have a shot at surviving mankind.

Makes me wonder where I'd actually plant a tree around here where I live - especially a sapling large enough that people would assume it was supposed to be there and leave it alone. Living in a city there aren't many obvious places to plant trees. Though I'm probably not being very creative.

I've definitely always liked the idea of guerilla planting things, though.

In dense cities you'd need to get together with some comrades and jackhammer your way through the pavement to plant a garden. Also, rooftop gardens and vertical gardens that crawl up buildings (passion fruits thrive like this).
