[DNR] Plant a tree for Arbor Day, April 26
Start Date: 4/11/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 4/11/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
The DNR Division of Forestry reminds Hoosiers that Friday, April 26, is a day to put down roots—tree roots—in recognition of Arbor Day.

Communities throughout Indiana will take part in the 142nd Arbor Day in the United States, and will celebrate by planting trees.

Conceived by J. Sterling Morton in 1872, Arbor Day is the oldest conservation-related holiday in the U.S., predating Earth Day by almost 100 years. The purpose of Arbor Day is to raise awareness about the benefits of trees. Arbor Day is observed in all 50 states and many European countries.

The first Arbor Day observance in Indiana was April 11, 1884. The date of Arbor Day changed for several years at the discretion of the governor, until 1991 when it was established as the last Friday of April, which is also the official date of National Arbor Day.
