Happy Arbor Day, Sarasota!

Arbor Day is a holiday observed in many countries around the world during which individuals and organizations are encouraged to plant and care for trees.

The first international Arbor Day was initiated in a small Spanish village in 1805 by a local priest with a passion for the "importance of trees for health, hygiene, decoration, nature, environment and customs." He, accompanied by many members of the community, decided to plant the first tree in a place known as the Valley of Eijdo.

On April 10, 1872, the first American Arbor Day was celebrated in Nebraska. An estimated one million trees were planted that day.
