Arbor Day (Landscaping & Planting Resources)

Today is Arbor Day and in honor of this National (and global) holiday, we wanted to provide our readers with resources for landscaping and planting.

Arbor Day Fact

Arbor Day originated in Nebraska City, on April 10th, 1872 and was founded by J. Sterling Morton. It is estimated that more than 1,000,000 trees were planted on this day and has since been recognized as a day to plant and care for trees, 

Schools, community organizations, and local authorities all over the world celebrate Arbor Day by cleaning up public parks, caring for trees, and planting trees.
