Established nationwide in 1970, National Arbor Day is the last Friday in April, but many states observe Arbor Day on different dates, according to their best tree-planting times. Click here to view when individual state or territories observes Arbor Day.
Originally conceptualized by Julius Sterling Morton, a Nebraska journalist and politician, the first Arbor Day took place on April 10, 1872 in Nebraska. Throughout his long career, Morton worked to improve agricultural techniques in his adopted state and throughout the United States when he served as President Grover Cleveland’s Secretary of Agriculture.
