Planet Ark wants to say a huge THANK YOU to the thousands of individuals, schools, communities, councils, Landcare groups, businesses, ambassadors, and our sponsors, Toyota Australia and Bunnings Warehouse, who dug in to make Schools Tree Day and National Tree Day an amazing success. Over a million native trees, and shrubs and edibles have found a new home.
We are still tallying up the totals but we know it has been a record year with more than 4,000 sites and events across the country.
Like the National Tree Day Facebook page to see some of the great images from around the country.
Have a Dirty Weekend at Home
There are literally hundreds of National Tree Day events happening around the country this weekend. But if you can't make it along to one of them or can't find one in your area don't feel left out. You can take part at home!
Students Get Into Nature
Research released by Planet Ark for today's Schools Tree Day shows that parents value a green playground as highly as academic achievement when choosing their children's school.
