It’s here, it’s here, Arbor Day is here.
Since 1872, the tree planter’s holiday has been celebrated on the last Friday of April. People across the country are planting trees and greening communities. More than 194 organizations and cities have planned Arbor Day celebrations across America.

This year we set a goal to plant 70,000 trees together during the month of April. Our friends at Unilever and Ahold wanted to help us reach this goal, so for every tweet with #arborday, they committed to planting a tree in a forest of need, planting up to 20,000 trees. We’re thrilled that you’ve helped us plant 71,913 trees — and counting — exceeding our initial goal.
Arbor Day is a reminder of all that trees do for us. It’s a holiday that focuses on the future, not on the past. The trees planted today will give shade, clean water, and purify the air for generations to come. Every year, the Arbor Day Foundation plants and distributes more than 10 million trees across the globe. We invite you to grab a shovel and celebrate Arbor Day with us.
