BS"D "It was the custom on Tu B"Shvat to plant a cedear sapling for every boy born during the year, and a young cypress for every girl. When young people grew up and married, branches from their cedar and cypresses were cut down and woven together to build their huppah." - from Seder l'Tu b'shvat - this seder "ties all Jews to the land of Israel."
