Arbor Day

Arbor Day 2012 10

Arbor Day is a Day for celebrating trees.  In Nebraska in 1872 J Sterling Morton proposed the idea of a day to plant trees, “Arbor Day”.  On that day prizes were offered for the county that could plant the most trees properly.  One Million trees were said to have been planted on that first Arbor Day.  By 1882 States all across the country were celebrating Arbor Day.
