www.arborday.org What is Arbor Day?

Arbor Day is the time for planting new trees in yards, parks, neighborhoods, and communities. Arbor day is also a time to appreciate trees both for their beauty and their usefulness. Arbor Day has a respectable history, as well as local roots. Begun in 1872 by Adams, NY (Jefferson County), native J. Sterling Morton, Arbor Day was intended to highlight the need to conserve topsoil and increase timber availability in his adopted state of Nebraska. Though it began as an American tradition, Arbor Day, which is observed on the last Friday in April, is now celebrated worldwide.
