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.
In Wisconsin, the Department of Natural Resources helps celebrate Arbor Day with an environmental education program designed to teach students the importance of trees within our environment. Wisconsin’s Arbor Day is celebrated by schools on the last Friday in April and is usually linked with Earth Day. Annually, the state nursery program provides 75,000 free tree seedlings to Wisconsin fourth grade students for this celebration.
