The last Friday in April is always National Arbor Day. It’s the Tree Planter’s holiday, and has been celebrated since 1872 in the US. It began in Nebraska, a largely treeless plain back in the 1800’s. It is a day to plant and dedicate a tree to help nature and the environment. Millions of trees are planted on this day. However this is a worldwide event. It’s celebrated around the globe at different times of the year. The very first Arbor Day is believed to have originated in the Spanish village of Mondoñedo. They held the first documented arbor plantation festival organized by its mayor in 1594.
Today, the National Arbor Day Foundation provides millions of trees for planting. It is estimated that 18 million tress are planted each year on Arbor Day.
I hope your Friday breezes by and you can settle into an awesome weekend!
HAVE A GREAT ONE GANG!
