According to Wikipedia:

Arbor Day (from the Latin arbor, meaning tree) is a holiday in which individuals and groups are encouraged to plant and care for trees. Today, many countries observe this holiday. Though usually observed in the spring, the date varies, depending on climate and suitable planting season.The first American Arbor Day was originated in Nebraska City, Nebraska, United States by J. Sterling Morton in 1872.
