All 50 states celebrate “Arbor Day” to honor trees. Most states have the day in April. What is Arbor Day about? The Arbor Day Foundation gives an annual “Good Steward” award to “recognize land owners or organizations whose creativity, outlook, and accomplishments exemplify wise stewardship practices and sustainability on private land from which others can learn.” Last year, a nonprofit called Plant With Purpose won the award, as the Arbor Day foundation cited how its projects “preserve land for future generations without harming jobs and livelihoods.” In this spirit, Truth in Accounting has recognized Utah, North Dakota and Wyoming as “Good Steward” states. These states score highest in earning the trust of their citizens (as reflected in a recent Gallup poll), the timeliness of their annual financial reporting, and truthfully balancing their budgets.
