The National Arbor Day Foundation
What would your life be like without trees? The first Arbor Day was celebrated in Nebraska
in 1872, in response to a state proclamation urging settlers and homesteaders to plant
trees that would provide shade, shelter, fruit, fuel, and beauty for residents of the
largely treeless plains. On that first Arbor Day, more than one million trees were planted.
