Though it is celebrated on different days in different states, Connecticut, Nebraska, and 24 other states all celebrate Arbor Day on the final Friday in April. The first American Arbor Day occurred on April 10, 1872, though Spain was known to hold a similar celebration as early as 1594.

Traditionally, it is asked that each individual plant a tree to commemorate Arbor Day and to help prevent deforestation. For more information please visit the official Arbor Day webiste at
