Planet Ark's National Tree Day and Schools Tree Day provide all Australians with an opportunity to do something positive for the environment and reconnect with nature, thanks to support from our longstanding major sponsor Toyota Australia

Planet Ark works with councils, schools and community groups to help hundreds of thousands of Australians plant over 1 million native trees, shrubs and grasses at more than 4000 Tree Day events.

Tree Day Dates:

Planet Ark's National Tree Day occurs on the last weekend of July every year - this is the optimal planting time for the majority of Australians towns. However, we're very aware that this date doesn't suit some areas - and for that reason, you can find a date that suits you. As Planet Ark believes, "every day is Tree Day". 

This years dates:

National Tree Day will be on Sunday 27th July & Schools Tree Day Friday 25th July 2014

*Next Year the dates will be Friday 24th July 2015 (Schools Tree Day) and Sunday 26th July 2015 (National Tree Day).
