Happy Arbor Day! While the celebration of Arbor Day varies from state to state, National Arbor Day is observed on the last Friday in April.

Here at the ‘Disco, we’ll party it up for the trees by remembering the 1976 Peanuts special, It’s Arbor Day, Charlie Brown! The special aired in March ’76 and was the last to feature a full score by Vince Guaraldi who passed away not long after finishing work on the program.
