Happy Arbor Day, April 27, 2012

Arbor Day (from the Latin arbor, meaning tree) is a holiday in which individuals and groups are encouraged to plant and care for trees.

In the United States, Arbor Day is celebrated the last Friday in April.

It originated in Nebraska City, NebraskaUnited States by J. Sterling Morton.

The first Arbor Day was held on April 10, 1872, and an estimated one million trees were planted that day.

Many countries now observe a similar holiday. Though usually observed in the spring, the date varies, depending on climate and suitable planting season.

  1. Here, we have an early morning shot of my Eucalyptus Tree. I continue to be amazed and very pleased with its rapid growth over the last 2 years. I think the rakings from the chicken runs have something to do with that. –jim
