THE HISTORY OF ARBOR DAY
Arbor Day sprouted from the mind of a zealous tree lover named Julius Sterling Morton, who had a passion for planting all kinds of trees.
The first Arbor Day occurred on April 10, 1872, in Nebraska City, Nebraska. It’s estimated that nearly one million trees were planted on this day.
“Other holidays repose upon the past; Arbor Day proposes for the future.”
–J. Sterling Morton.
