When Is Tu B'Shevat

Tu B'Shevat is known as the New Year for Trees and it is observed on the 15th day of the Jewish month. Shevat is a holiday for all Jews. 

What do People do on Tu B'Shevat

On Tu B'Shevat, the New Year, people calculate the age of the trees for tithing. It also means that the people should not eat the fruits of the trees for the first three years. The fruit in the fourth year is for G-d and only after that you can eat it. Each and every tree is believed to have aged one year on Tu B'Shevat, provided it is planted on Shevat 14.
