Friday, April 26th is Arbor Day! National Arbor Day is celebrated on the last Friday in April, but each state celebrates its own Arbor Day depending on when the best times to plant trees in their area is. This day is used to celebrate trees and encourage people to plant trees, bushes and plants in their local neighborhood.
National Band & Tag is celebrating Arbor Day with our Arboretum Tags and Tree Tags. We manufacturer custom tags to go on trees for a multitude of reasons. Arboretums tag their trees to identify the name, scientific name, origin, and provide visitors with other information about that specific tree.
Tree tags have multiple uses depending on the organization do the tagging, some examples of tree tags are identifying trees that have been treated for emerald ash borer, city storm water trees, trees to protect and not cut down, forestry research trees, memorial trees, and more.
When Julius Sterling Morton founded Arbor Day back in 1872, his idea was simple, set aside a special day for tree planting. Share with us in the comments below, how you are celebrating Arbor Day?
