The California redwood includes coast redwood, Sequoia semprivans, and the Sierra big tree, Sequoia gigantea. In 1937, California adopted both trees as the state tree since both fit the category of a California redwood. The tallest tree, a 364-foot coast redwood, stands iia Humboldt County, earning its name as the Founder's Tree. The largest redwood in the Sierra, the General Sherman Tree, is in the Sequoia National Park, with a circumference of 102.6 feet. Experts believe the tree is 3,000 - 4,000 years old. Once populating the entire North American continent, redwoods are now limited to the Pacific Coast region because of environmental changes. The Arbor Day Foundation has honored 162 California cities and towns as Tree City USA communities. Tree City USA recognizes commu- nities that are committed to its trees More than 135 million Americans live in a Tree City USA community. To see a list of Tree City USA communities, go to arborday.org/programs. The first Arbor Day was celebrated April 10, 1872, in Nebraska thanks to a resolu- tion proposed by Nebraska City, Neb., resident J. Ster- ling Morton. Morton, a civic leader, agriculturist and for- mer newspaper editor, urged Nebraskans to "set aside one day to plant trees, both forest and fruit." The tree-planting holiday was so popular that by 1920 more than 45 states and U.S. territories celebrated Arbor Day annually. Today, 50 states and coun- tries around the world observe Arbor Day. The Arbor Day Foundation is a nonprofit conservation or- ganization of nearly one mil- lion members, with a mission to inspire peopIe to plant, nurture and celebrate trees.
