MADISON -- Elementary school teachers are eligible to order free white pine seedlings for fourth grade students before March 15 from the Department of Natural Resources' State Nursery Program as part of a statewide Arbor Day celebration in April. Seedlings will be delivered to local DNR offices as close to Arbor Day as possible.

Teachers should use the online form on the Fourth grade Arbor Day free tree program page of the DNR website.

Arbor Day celebrates trees and their importance to the environment and quality of life of all. It started in Nebraska in 1872 and is marked nationally and in other countries. Wisconsin celebrates Arbor Day annually the last Friday in April.
