Arbor Day grants for $300 have been made to all 49 Idaho applicants that requested them for 2015.

The Idaho Nursery and Landscape Association (INLA), in cooperation with the Idaho Department of Lands (IDL), A vista, Rocky Mountain Power, and Idaho Power, announced the 2015 Arbor Day grant recipients, which included Aberdeen, American Falls and Rockland.

This program helps cities celebrate Arbor Day, plant appropriate trees for energy conservation and fosters a stronger relationship between Idaho communities and the nursery and utility industries.

The celebration of Arbor Day represents an opportunity for children and adults alike to take positive action to make their world a better place and to learn about trees and the environment. The first celebration of Arbor Day took place on April 10, 1872. Arbor Day is officially celebrated in the U.S. and Idaho on the last Friday in April (April 24 this year). However communities may be celebrating on a different day due to the climate and planting conditions in their area.
