Arbor Day is a holiday in which individuals and groups are encouraged to plant and care for trees. Today, many countries observe such a holiday. In the USA Arbor Day was founded in 1872 by Julius Sterling Morton in Nebraska City, and it’s observed on the last Friday in April.
While Arbor Day in years past was a time for volunteering and community events, this year is very different.
BUT THE SPIRIT OF ARBOR DAY IS STILL STRONG.
