Fourth grade Arbor Day free tree program

Arbor Day is a holiday during which individuals and groups are encouraged to plant trees. The holiday originated in Nebraska in 1872 but is now celebrated nationally and in many other countries. Wisconsin’s Arbor Day is celebrated on the last Friday in April and is usually linked with Earth Day.

In Wisconsin, the Department of Natural Resources' reforestation program helps celebrate Arbor Day with an environmental education program designed to teach students the importance of trees within our environment. Annually, we provide thousands of free tree seedlings to Wisconsin fourth grade students for this celebration.

Access planting tips and Arbor Day educational tools, along with planting tips and general information from our annual application form [PDF].
