Did you know that Arbor means tree in Latin? well, that’s why we call today Arbor Day, or at least why Conservationist J. Sterling Morton called it Arbor Day when he created in back in 1872 when he proposed it to the Nebraska State Board of Agriculture because Nebraska back then was nearly treeless.The idea, of course, was to get people to plant trees and care for them so that we would never run out of them… which actually could happen! Today there are over 228 billion trees in the U.S. but that is less than out national debt!
