Celebrate Vermont Arbor Day on Friday, May 4th, 2018!

Arbor Day is a day set aside to celebrate trees and all of their benefits. It has been over 130 years since J. Sterling Morton founded Arbor Day. His simple idea of establishing a special day for planting trees is now more important than ever. In Vermont, we celebrate Arbor Day on the First Friday in May, a day when we can roll up our sleeves and plant trees! The Vermont Urban & Community Forestry Program sponsors opportunities and resources for your community, school, and students to get involved in celebrating Arbor Day.
