Arbor Day on Friday, April 26, 2024 — a secular day of observance in the U.S. — helps celebrate and emphasize the importance of planting trees. “While most holidays celebrate something that has already happened and is worth remembering, Arbor Day represents a hope for the future,” Dan Lambe, CEO of the Arbor Day Foundation in Lincoln, Nebraska, told Fox News Digital. “The simple act of planting a tree represents a belief that the tree will grow to provide us with clean air and water, cooling shade, habitat for wildlife, healthier communities and natural beauty — all for a better tomorrow.” Arbor Day is widely known as the tree planter’s holiday, and Lambe said the day is marked for people to come together in recognition of the wonders of trees. “Communities, schools, businesses and individuals alike unite to plant trees, provide education on tree planting and care and celebrate all the benefits trees offer,” he indicated (info is available at arborday.org/celebrate). Created in 1972, the Arbor Day Foundation is the world’s largest membership nonprofit organization dedicated to planting trees. “With a focus on communities and forests of greatest need, the foundation — alongside its more than one million members, supporters and valued partners — has helped to plant more than 500 million trees in more than 50 countries,” said Lambe. The Arbor Day holiday was born out of a need for trees, said Lambe. “As pioneers began moving into the Nebraska Territory, the lack of trees was felt deeply. There were no trees to provide windbreaks to keep soil in place, for fuel and building materials, and for shade from the hot sun and trees were a tool to navigate those challenges,” Lambe said.The first Arbor Day was on April 10, 1872, and the Arbor Day Foundation estimates that over one million trees were planted in Nebraska that day.
