Arbor Day History

The last Friday in April is known as National Arbor Day. This day has been celebrated since 1872. The tree lover day first occurred in Nebraska during the 1800s. The state at the time was mostly treeless and the day was a way to getting others to start planting trees. Today, the National Arbor Day foundation provides millions of trees that are planted each year.

A journalist from Nebraska J. Sterling Morton helped create the National Arbor Day in 1872. With his help those with agricultural knowledge were informed of the need for trees. Over one million trees were planted that  first Arbor Day.

Every Year National Arbor Day is observed on the last Friday of April.
