Arbor Day

About Arbor Day

The simple act of planting a tree will have a positive impact for generations to come. In the words of J. Sterling Morton, founder of Arbor Day, "Other holidays repose upon the past, Arbor Day proposes for the future." Arbor Day celebrates the planting and nurturing of trees, and celebrates all the ways trees enrich our lives and stabilize our environment. Texas Arbor Day is held in the beginning of November, and the official Sam Houston Arbor Day is held the last Thursday in March.

Students, faculty, and staff are invited to join Grounds Services and Leadership Initiatives for tree-planting events held in honor of both Texas and Sam Houston Arbor Day. Trees will be planted on the SHSU campus, and participants will be able to help leave their legacy behind through the act of planting trees that will continue to grow and thrive for years to come.

Texas Arbor Day will be held on November 2, 2017 from 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM.
