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 really successful year with over 3,000 planting sites across the country! And this year mark's a 20 year milestone for National Tree Day. During that time Australians and have planted over twenty-two million trees. Now that's grounds to celebrate!
