PLANET is proud to honor America's veterans and leaders during this day of service, and we welcome you to join us in this nationally recognized event. Each year, this event draws hundreds of landscape and lawn care professionals from across the country to Arlington National Cemetery to spend the day mulching, cabling and installing lightening protection for trees, pruning, planting, and liming and aerating more than 200 acres.
