Arbor Day is a counterfeit holiday that has long since drifted from its original mission. According to the Arbor Day Foundation, the initial observance was established in 1872 by J. Sterling Morton in Nebraska City, Neb. Morton’s push to plant trees in the plains of North America was threefold: create artificial windbreaks to keep soil on farms in place, grow trees as a source of fuel, and grow even more trees for building material. By the 1920s, each state in the United States had passed public laws that stipulated a certain day to be Arbor Day. Now it is a national observance noted on the last Friday in April that has nothing to do with its founding principles. Instead in has become a silly exercise in junk science and pagan worship.
