APRIL 2018 LOPEZ’S LAW
Welcome to the first newsletter from the Marc Lopez Law Firm! Maybe I should have started a newsletter years ago, but you know the old saying: There’s no time like the present.

Nebraska pioneer J. Sterling Morton set Arbor Day in motion. A lover of nature, Morton was eager to share this passion with others. As a journalist and newspaper editor, he often encouraged his readers to plant trees, either individually or as part of a group. In 1872, Morton proposed a tree-planting holiday called Arbor Day for April 10 that year. In 1885, it was proclaimed a legal holiday in Nebraska and given the official date of April 22 — Morton’s birthday. He proposed that prizes be given out to the community or organization that planted the most trees. On the first official Arbor Day, about 1 million trees were planted. The date was later moved to the last Friday in April, but it now varies from state to state based on each area’s best tree-planting season.
