At American Forests, we love every season, but the fresh scents, beautiful colors and new life make us excited for the first day of spring each year!

Read on to find out some of our favorite spring things and help us celebrate the start of a new season.

1. Fresh Blooms

Whether it’s flowers or trees, everything is in bloom during the spring. The sweet scent of pollen swirls through the air. It’s incredible to see nature sprout and grow right before your eyes.

2. Vibrant Colors

Going from leafless trees and the snow-covered ground to being surrounded by vibrant and luscious landscapes is one of the most refreshing feelings. The world comes to life after surviving the cold winter and it’s apparent in the blue skies and bright green grass.

3. Baby Animals

New life is everywhere during springtime. Animals come out of hibernation and babies are born. From lambs and ducklings to fox pups and bear cubs, you’ll be sure to get your fill of cute baby animals.

4. Cherry Blossoms

Sweet smells and delicate flowers make cherry blossoms one of the many great gifts that comes with spring. If you’re lucky enough to live in an area with cherry trees, don’t forget to take a moment to appreciate the beauty they bring to the surrounding landscape.

5. A New Soundtrack

The sounds of the season tie everything together. Branches and leaves rustling, birds singing and creeks trickling are music to the ears. Waking up in the morning is a bit easier when you’re greeted by spring’s song.
