Arbor Day is celebrated across the nation in all 50 states on the last Friday in April. Trees play a critical role in creating a healthier, safer, and more beautiful community. They help moderate temperature, clean our air, filter our water, produce oxygen needed for all living things, and are the key to creating diverse ecosystems worldwide.
