Arbor Day is not just a day to think about trees and how amazing and important they are; it is about actually planting trees so that we can experience how amazing they are. And planting trees is something Moon Valley Nurseries knows all about!

Arbor Day is like a birthday for us. It is a day that celebrates something we love doing every day. We plant hundreds of trees all day every day across the Southwest.

Since 2010, we have planted almost 2 million trees!

About Arbor Day

Arbor Day is a holiday where people are encouraged to plant trees. J Sterling Morton first founded this holiday in Nebraska, 1872. By the early 1900’s, every state declared Arbor Day a holiday by law. It is believed that one million trees were planted on the very first Arbor Day in 1872.
