Arbor Day's Beginnings
On January 4, 1872, Morton first proposed a tree-planting holiday to be called "Arbor Day" at a meeting of the State Board of Agriculture. The date was set for "April 10, 1872". Prizes were offered to counties and individuals for planting properly the largest number of trees on that day. It was estimated that more than one million trees were planted in Nebraska on the first Arbor Day.
"Arbor Day" was officially proclaimed by the young state's Gov. Robert W. Furnas on "March 12, 1874", and the day itself was observed "April 10, 1874". In 1885, "Arbor Day" was named a legal holiday in Nebraska and "April 22", Morton's birthday, was selected as the date for its permanent observance.
According to accounts from the Nebraska City News, April 1885, the City celebrated "Arbor Day" with a grand parade and a speech by J. Sterling Morton. Students of different grades met at their respective school rooms in the morning for the purpose of planting at least one tree. Each tree that was planted was labeled with the grade, the time planted, and was to be specially cared for by that grade.
Today the most common date for the state observances is the last Friday in April, and several U.S. presidents have proclaimed a "national Arbor Day" on that date. But a number of "state Arbor Days" are at other times to coincide with the best tree planting weather, from January and February in the south to May in the far north.
Arbor Day has now spread beyond the United States and is observed in many countries of the world.
