McMinnville Electric System recognized Arbor Day in Tennessee with a learning event at Bobby Ray Elementary. While National Arbor Day is celebrated on the last Friday in April, many states have implemented state-recognized Arbor Days that reflect the best time for planting in their region. Tennessee Arbor Day is held the first Friday in March.
