New to Tree Day?
Tree Day activities can include planting projects, land or bush restoration, and educational events that inspire residents to outdoors enjoying the environment. We promote all public events online, and can also connect you to participating local councils, schools and businesses to do great things together.
"Council has allowed us to 'reclaim' a previously mowed area close to the stream bank. This will benefit water quality, minimise erosion and help to link habitat for frogs, birds, insect, reptiles and more." Gemma Wright, The Cranks Creek Community Nature Conservation group
"The National Tree Day campaign was very helpful in increasing volunteer participation." Survey respondent

It outlines a range of activities that have already been implemented at past Tree Day sites as well as ideas for easy and accessible activities that require little resources or cost.
