Arbor Day is a day in which individuals, businesses, community groups, church groups, schools, and other organizations are encouraged to plant and care for trees. The practice began on April 10, 1872 in Nebraska City, Nebraska, and is an endearing part of our national culture. Arbor Day is also observed in similar fashion in cultures throughout the world. In the United States, Arbor Day is celebrated on the last Friday of April.
Not only can you buy and plant trees yourself, but you can also gift trees to other people, groups, and organizations so they can plant them as well.
