The first Arbor Day took place on April 10, 1872 in Nebraska.

Today all 50 states celebrate Arbor Day although the dates may vary in keeping with the local climate.

At the federal level, in 1970, President Richard Nixon proclaimed the last Friday in April as National Arbor Day.

Arbor Day is also now celebrated in other countries including Australia. Variations are celebrated as 'Greening Week' of Japan, 'The New Year's Days of Trees' in Israel, 'The Tree-loving Week' of Korea, 'The Reforestation Week' of Yugoslavia, 'The Students' Afforestation Day' of Iceland and 'The National Festival of Tree Planting' in India.

Got this from an article on this site:
