Celebrate Arbor Day

Today is Arbor Day! Arbor Day, April 24th, began in Nebraska in 1872 when J. Sterling Morton decided that the landscape and economy would benefit from the widescale planting of trees. Arbor Day is our nation's oldest environmental celebration. To celebrate, help plant trees at Liberty Elementary School on Saturday, April 25th, 9:30 a.m., with Pittsburgh Friends of the Urban Forest at Filbert and Elmer Streets. Join PFUF and members of the Liberty Elementary School community as we plant and care for trees around the school. This planting will complete a multi-year effort to reforest the Liberty Elementary School grounds. Contact Caitlin to volunteer at
