Happy Arbor Day!

Arbor Day in New Jersey is celebrated yearly on the last Friday in April (celebrations are held as early as January and February in some southern states and as late as May in more northern locations.) Each state's Arbor Day celebration date initiates the signing of an Arbor Day proclamation by local officials and Arbor Day activities related to trees and tree planting. Arbor Day originated in Nebraska City, Nebraska, and the first Arbor Day was held there on April 10, 1872; an estimated one million trees were planted that day!
