By Phyllis Naegeli
1     Who is Julius Sterling Morton? What does he have to do with Arbor Day? It all started in Nebraska in the 1800s. J. Sterling Morton loved trees. In 1854, he and his new wife moved to Nebraska. Mr. Morton was going to work for the state's first newspaper. When they arrived, they saw miles and miles of prairie. Where were all the trees?
