Yes, I know today (6/19/2022) is both Father's Day and Juneteenth, but I wanted to know when Arbor Day was. You know, add it to my calendar. Welp, as it turns out, that's not such a simple question. Here's the response I got when I asked the good people at “I think on a website devoted to any particular holiday, first and foremost it should show prominently near the top the date of that current year's holiday”:

Dear Bill, Thank you for contacting the Arbor Day Foundation.

National Arbor Day is always celebrated on the last Friday in April, but many states observe Arbor Day on different dates throughout the year based on the best tree-planting times in their area.

In Tennessee, Arbor Day is officially celebrated on the first Friday in March.
