Join Us for Arbor Day 2018!

Arbor Day 2018

It’s almost Arbor Day, and we’re ready to celebrate! Are you?


National Arbor Day falls on Friday, April 27th, 2018. Historically, Arbor Day is a holiday that encourages individuals to plant a tree to help sustain our environment. Did you know a study of 10 cities found community forests save an average of one life each year? (In New York City, trees save an average of eight lives every year!)

This year, we’ll be participating in a number of events across the country to celebrate our beloved trees. During the week of Arbor Day, we’ll be educating communities on how to best plant trees, donating treatments to iconic trees, hosting creative planting workshops, and more.

See our current list of events below. We’ll be updating the list on our official event page, so keep checking back for additions in your area. Want to help out? Connect with us today.

Learn more about Arbor Day at the Arbor Day Foundation’s website (they even have a countdown on the homepage!). How will you be celebrating this year?
