National Arbor Day
Arbor Day is one of the oldest environmental holidays, established first in Nebraska in 1872.This holiday was created to help encourage the planting of trees in a near barren landscape. In the past year we have witness the loss of many forest members plagued by tropical storms, pests, and fires.Therefore, Arbor Day celebrations are especially important this year. This national celebration recognizes all the wonderful benefits trees do for us everyday. Arbor Day is a reminder to invest in the health and longevity of our forests. We celebrate by replanting those we have lost, and protecting the trees who remain standing tall. So how did you celebrate?
