Tu B'Shvat, the 15th day of the Jewish month of Shevat, is a holiday known as the New Year for Trees. Judaism has several different new years - Tu B'Shevat is the new year for the purpose of calculating the age of trees for tithing. The Torah states that fruit from trees may not be eaten during the first three years; the fourth year's fruit is for G-d, and after that, you can eat the fruit. Each tree is considered to have aged one year as of Tu B'Shevat. One custom is to eat a new fruit on this day, or to plant a new tree.
