Arbor Day Flowers & Gifts
What is Arbor Day?
Arbor Day is an annual event honored by individuals, schools, businesses and communities, all with the goals of planting trees, practicing conservation and caring for the environment. Established in 1872 by tree advocate, J. Sterling Morton, it is estimated that more than one million trees were planted for the inaugural Arbor Day. Almost 150 years later, Morton’s statement, “Other holidays repose upon the past; Arbor Day proposes for the future’ still holds true. Nationally marked as the last Friday of April, many states and other countries observe Arbor Day during the time of year that is ideal for planting trees.
How to Celebrate Arbor Day
Such a beautiful holiday, Arbor Day not only cultivates connection with our environment but also with each other. A widespread way to celebrate Arbor Day is for communities to plant trees together, and a considerate Arbor Day gift is to dedicate your tree to a loved one. However, if you are unable to plant a tree, there are still ways to participate in Arbor Day festivities. Plan a nature hike and learn about the trees in your area. Initiate a neighborhood recycling program or encourage commitment from others to swap out disposable paper products with reusables. Whether you are planting the next member of the redwoods forest or simply switching over to e-bills, Arbor Day is about giving back to the ones that give so much to us - our trees.
