nadf.pngNational Arbor Day Foundation
A lack of trees in the Nebraska Territory in the mid-1800’s led to the founding of Arbor Day. J. Sterling Morton, an early pioneer to the area, was a nature lover and a journalist, and it was through his dedicated efforts and enthusiasm that Arbor Day eventually became a legal and recognized holiday. Today the National Arbor Day Foundation still inspires people to plant, nurture and celebrate trees.  They have built an organization of dedicated members who lead the way and help individual citizens plant and care for trees to enrich the environment. www.arborday.org
