Cliff Baker, Embassy Lawn & Landscaping contractor, buries the root ball of one of three evergreens Dec. 22, 2020 on Peterson Air Force Base, part of a belated observation of Arbor Day. The trees made that corner of base a little greener, as well as converting carbon dioxide into life-sustaining oxygen. (U.S. Space Force photo by Griffin Swartzell)
