California: Schwarzenegger plants Ginkgo tree
California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger along with Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Wangari Maathai, and Shaklee CEO Roger Barnett planted a Ginkgo tree on the grounds of Shaklee's Pleasanton, Calif., headquarters on Wednesday, April 22, 2009 in honor of Earth Day and Shaklee's Million Trees, Million Dreams program.
