Arbor Day in South Korea is celebrated on the anniversary of the historical event of the unification of the Three Kingdoms of Korea. It has been celebrated since 1946 as an unofficial holiday until it was made an official national holiday in 1949 by presidential decree. It has been abolished and reinstated a few times since then and now is celebrated as an unofficial holiday to replant the forests after the tragic waves of deforestation in the times of the world wars.
Arbor Day in South Korea is known as Singmogil or Sikmogil. This translates to Tree Planting Day and symbolizes the hope for a better future.
