Hi, it’s Leslie Harris, and today is the 150th celebration of arbor day, according to the Arbor Day Foundation, although some say it dates all the way back to 1594, in a village in Spain called Mondoñedo.

The first American Arbor Day was started by J Sterling Morton, yes, the guy that the Morton Arboretum I Lisle was named after. Find out more about this holiday and how you can help get more trees planted by visiting the Arbor Day Foundation’s website HERE
