Today is a national holiday with roots right here in Nebraska. It's Arbor Day — a day to celebrate and plant trees.
The day started as a newspaper editor's challenge back in 1872. There were several events around the metro on Friday.
If you didn't get a chance to plant a tree today, you can celebrate Arbor Day all weekend long by helping the group Keep Omaha Beautiful which plans to clean up area parks.
