Arbor Day and Shipping Materials

Arbor Day and Shipping Materials

Nebraska newspaper editor — and resident of Nebraska City, NE — J. Sterling Morton had an enthusiasm for trees and advocated strongly for individuals and civic groups to plant them. Once he became secretary of the Nebraska Territory, he further spread his message of the value of trees. And on January 4, 1872, Morton first proposed a tree-planting holiday to be called “Arbor Day” at a State Board of Agriculture meeting.

Arbor Day was officially proclaimed in 1874 by Nebraska’s Governor, Robert W. Furnas, and the day was observed on April 10 that year. In 1885, Arbor Day was named a legal state holiday in Nebraska, and April 22 was selected as the date for its permanent annual observance.

Almost 150 years after the first Arbor Day, there are more ways to pay homage to the holiday founder and his efforts toward the environment than ever before. And while Nebraska City, NE, is the official birthplace of the Arbor Day holiday, communities around the globe gather every year to celebrate trees and plant for a greener tomorrow.

PackagingSupplies.com has a dependable relationship with trees and their growth cycle. Our main source of prime materials for shipping boxes, moving supplies, and many more cardboard articles come from this noble organism that has proven through human history to be one of our most valuable allies.

In our country, we are so fortunate to have many natural wonders; one of the most magnificent ones is the Giant Forests located in the Sequoia National Park in Sierra Nevaa, California. These Sequoia groves are portions of Sierra Nevada mixed conifer forest that contain giant sequoias. In most groves, giant sequoias are fewer in number than other tree species but are the most visually striking and dominant in size. Some of these colossus trees are as tall as 275’ in height (world-famous General Sherman). They are so massive that our longest 250’ roll of bubble wrap stretched will be barely enough to reach the top.

National Truffle Day

The original chocolate truffle was a ball of ganache, or a whipped chocolate and cream filling, often flavored and coated in cocoa. Nowadays, the term is often used to describe any filled chocolate, but the ganache is what gives the truffle its unique distinction.
