Arbor Day

Arbor Day is that time each year when we celebrate the importance of trees in our lives. Trees convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, even as they provide valuable shade for buildings and people. They provide food and shelter for wildlife, timber and paper products for us.

Nationally and in many states around the country, Arbor Day is celebrated on the last Friday in April. Some states celebrate on other days and a few even set aside an entire week. Below is a listing of the specific Arbor Day celebrations.

Schools and municipalities across  America sponsor tree planting events around Arbor Day. This year why not take time to plant a tree on Arbor Day.
