About Arbor Day

Arbor Day is celebrated each spring to remind the public about the importance of urban forestry, trees and tree care. The event also maintains Minneapolis' status as a Tree City USA for the 35th year.

Founded by J. Sterling Morton in 1872, the first Arbor Day was celebrated in Nebraska in response to a state proclamation urging settlers and homesteaders to plant trees that would provide shade, shelter, fruit, fuel and beauty for residents of the largely treeless plains.
