As well as many other international observances, Arbor Day originates in the USA. The very first event was held in Nebraska in 1872. In 1885 Arbor Day gained an official status and it started spreading across the world. The English-speaking countries adopted celebration of Arbor Day (or National Tree Planting Day) very fast, while in other countries this ecological observance didn’t appear till the end of the 20th century.
The Kenyans are aware about the environmental situation in their country, that is why they annually participate in the tree planting related events. The tree seedlings are distributed among schools and children plant the trees. This teaches them to protect environment and how to take care of trees.
Very often Kenyans plant coconut and palm trees along the south-east border of their land, that is washed by the Indian Ocean.Remind me with Google Calendar
