Arbor Day

GEORGIA ARBOR DAY - 21 Feb 2020

In 1872, J. Sterling Morton proposed to the Nebraska Board of Agriculture that a special day be set aside for the planting of trees. This holiday - Arbor Day - was first observed with the planting of more than a million trees in Nebraska. Arbor Day is now observed throughout the nation and world.

Although National Arbor Day is in April, each state typically celebrates Arbor Day during their regional planting season. Georgia Arbor Day is celebrated on the third Friday of February. 

One of the best ways to celebrate Arbor Day is to plant a tree!
