Make The Most Of Arbor Day On April 26!

The first Arbor Day celebration was held in Nebraska in 1872. More than 150 years later, Arbor Day is celebrated in all 50 states and in many countries around the world. This year, Arbor Day will be observed in Wisconsin on Friday, April 26. Below are ways you can celebrate, educate and care for trees in your community.


Add Your Arbor Day Event Or Find One Near You

Spread the word about your celebration by adding your event to the Arbor Day Foundation webpage, or search the Arbor Day Foundation events page to find an event near you.

Contribute To Wisconsin’s Trillion Trees Pledge

Landowners and homeowners can contribute to Wisconsin’s Trillion Tree Pledge with a goal of planting 1 million trees in Wisconsin’s cities and villages by 2030. Complete the Wisconsin Tree Planting Survey to have your trees counted.

Plant For Permanence

Learn the best planting methods to give your tree the greatest chance for success. Some people assume that planting a tree is as easy as can be: “Just keep the green end up, right?” But there is more to it than that. Check out the videos, brochure and poster on the DNR Tree Planting Resources webpage for instructions on how to plant a tree properly.

Id A Tree

Check out the Wisconsin Urban Tree Key. This information sheet identifies the 64 most commonly found trees in Wisconsin communities. It was designed for students, residents and those looking for an easy-to-use reminder of the differences between some common trees. Additional tree identification tools can be found on the DNR Tree Identification webpage.

 Have Fun!

Visit the DNR Arbor Day webpage to find fun activities to do with your family or share with your community. The website includes printable activity pages, brochures and links to additional resources.
