Everything we love about spring falls into the beautiful month of April – National Lawn Care Month, Earth Day, and Arbor Day are just a few reasons to celebrate! But, you may not know the details of Arbor Day or its importance.
So, take a few minutes to discover its history and how you can celebrate:
The History of Arbor Day
Nearly 150 years ago, Julius Morton migrated to Nebraska with his wife. He was a lover of plants and nature but was disappointed that Nebraska was very bare. He petitioned to the local authorities that one day is set aside to plant trees. Julius knew his community could benefit from the shade, fuel, and building material that the trees offered. The authorities agreed and turned it into a contest! They challenged all of the communities around them to plant trees and other plants on one specific day. Through everyone’s efforts, over one million trees were planted on the first Arbor Day! Since then, Arbor Day has spread worldwide. In every corner of the world, citizens plant trees and celebrate nature on the last Friday of April each year.
How You Can Celebrate Arbor Day
