Photograph was edited for publication purposes Photograph article dated March 7, 1963 partially reads, "Today is the day you dig a hole and plant a tree. It's Arbor Day. In California, Arbor Day always comes on March 7, Luther Burbank's birthday. State law says school children can journey to an area where trees grow to plant one if they wish. Arbor Day was first observed April 10, 1872, in Nebraska, when more than 1 million trees were planted. California began the annual observance in 1886. The day is now observed in every state in the Union and it's a legal holiday in Utah (always the last Friday in April), in Florida (always the third Friday in January), in Nebraska (April 22), and it's a school holiday in New Mexico (always the second Friday in March)."
