The first day of spring was Friday. But here in New Mexico, we got an early start by celebrating Arbor Day on March 13.
While National Arbor Day is held on the last Friday in April, New Mexico, similar to several other states, observes the holiday at a time best suited for tree planting.
The Arbor Day Foundation encourages everyone to plant a tree to celebrate this special holiday. The Foundation’s website (www.arborday.org) offers many helpful tips from how to plant a tree to selecting the right tree for the right place.
This event only begins our celebration of nature.
Under the leadership of the Pajarito Enironmental Education Center, we will work on April 18 as part of Clean Up Los Alamos Day.
Then, again under PEEC’s efforts, we will honor Earth Day in Los Alamos County on April 22.
The first Arbor Day was celebrated in Nebraska on April 10, 1872, thanks to a resolution proposed by Nebraska City, Neb., resident J. Sterling Morton.
Morton, a civic leader, agriculturist and former newspaper editor, urged Nebraskans to “set aside one day to plant trees, both forest and fruit.”
