Florida has celebrated Arbor Day since 1886 and has one of the first Arbor Day celebrations in the nation, on the third Friday in January. (1/17/2020) National Arbor Day is always celebrated on the last Friday in April, but many states observe Arbor Day on different dates based on the best tree planting times in their area.
Over 200 communities in Florida celebrate Arbor Day, either as a stand-alone event or in conjunction with some other occasion. Check with your local city officials or school department to see how your community is celebrating Arbor Day.
