Today, J. Sterling Morton is best known as the co-founder of Arbor Day. Living in Nebraska City, Morton carefully watched the growth of the Nebraska Territory through all its ups and downs. He did not believe Nebraska was a Great American Desert, but quite the opposite. He believed in Nebraska's agriculture, and the honorable work of farmers. It was estimated that more than one million trees were planted in Nebraska on the first Arbor Day.
