About National Tree Day
Planet Ark is celebrating 20 years of National Tree Day and Schools Tree Day - Australia's largest community tree-planting and nature care event. Proudly sponsored by Toyota Australia, Tree Day is an opportunity to do something positive for your local environment and community and to reconnect with nature. National Tree Day started in 1996 and since then more than 3 million people have planted 21 million trees and plants and it's still growing.
This year we are specifically looking for your stories and photographs. If you have a history with Tree Day - particularly before and after images - please share your story with the nation.
