SOME FACTS AND HISTORY ABOUT ARBOR DAY

The first Arbor Day was celebrated in 1872 in Nebraska, and was created by Julius Morton, who was a politician, journalist and agriculturalist.  It was created to conserve and protect trees and plants wherever they may grow.  The holiday soon spread to other states and is now celebrated by all 50. However, it was not until 1970, when President Nixon  proclaimed a national Arbor Day.  The holiday is celebrated on the last Friday in April.

Arbor Day is traditionally not a gift giving holiday.  However, if gifts are provided around this holiday, the theme of trees and plants should be considered.

Gardener: If the gift recipient is a gardener, what would be more appropriate than purchasing something with a flower or plant motif.  It could be a vase, bowl or even a picture frame - there is a great amount of items to choose from.  Gardening supplies would also be a nice gift, but some people are particular as to the tools they use, so you may want to ask them or someone who know them well before purchasing.

Conversationalist: For the conversationalist we would recommend making a donation in the name of the recipient.  You can either donate directly to a conservation cause/organization, or put the money towards growing a tree in the U.S. or abroad.

Travel: The travel destination for this holiday is anywhere there is a lot of trees or if you cannot go that far, go to a local garden (or Botanical Garden if possible).  Depending on where you go in the U.S., many trees are beginning to grow their new leaves back after their long winter slumber.
