Celebrate Arbor Day

Four easy steps for a happy Arbor Day

  1. Celebrate Arbor Day by planting a tree and committing yourself to its care.
    Use this family-based activity to learn how to properly plant and care for your seedling or learn how to plant and care for your landscape tree. Then put your newly planted trees on the map and be part of Wisconsin's pledge to plant 75 million trees by 2030!
  2. Catch the Arbor Day spirit.
  3. Use music to celebrate your tree planting event.
  4. Join Wisconsin Tree City USA’s communities.
    Check to see if your city is recognized as a Tree City USA. The Arbor Day Foundation also recognizes schools, university campuses and hospitals for their committment to improving communities through tree-planting best practices.

Acts of creation are ordinarily reserved for gods and poets. To plant a pine, one need only own a shovel.
