Arbor Day Celebration at Markham Elementary School
April 25, 2014
Markham students plant a new Red Maple tree near the playground.

Students at Markham Elementary School observed Arbor Day on Friday, April 25, by planting a Red Maple tree in the playground area of the school. To commemorate the day and to celebrate Mt. Lebanon as Tree City USA, Markham students displayed artwork, read poems, played and sang songs about the environment. The tree was donated by the municipality.

Arbor Day originated in Nebraska in 1872, when the State Board of Agriculture adopted J. Sterling Morton's resolution that April 10 of that year be set aside for tree planting. The board awarded premiums for the greatest number of trees, cuttings, and seeds planted. More than a million trees were planted in Nebraska on the first Arbor Day, which is now celebrated on the last Friday in April.
