Every year National Tree Day and Schools Tree Day compose Australia’s largest tree planting and nature care event. Over 20 million trees, shrubs and grasses have been planted since 1996. And - each year more than 200,000 people participate in events run by their school, council, community group, and even at home.
As well as helping to care for and repair the natural environment Tree Day is a great opportunity to encourage people to get outside and in contact with nature.
In the run up to Tree Day, Planet Ark has launched a report titled Adding Trees – A Prescription for Health, Happiness and Fulfilment that examines the health and wealth benefits of contact with nature.
• Schools Tree Day is Friday 29th July and
• National Tree Day is Sunday 31st July.
There are two ways that you can support Tree Day, either attend a local school, council or community group event or encourage constituents to get involved. Contact us if you'd like to attend an event in your local area.
