The City of Edmonton Arbor Day tradition began in the early 1950’s. The City distributed evergreen seedlings to all grade 1 students in Edmonton. The Province of Alberta soon stepped up to provide seedlings for every grade 1 student in the province.

Each year over 15,000 children receive seedlings. Children grow up with their trees and some people even move their trees when they buy a new house!
