Thank you so much Australia for planting the seed for a greener future. This year we've seen over 4,000 events run by schools, councils, community groups, families, dedicated individuals, Toyota dealers and other businesses so far. 

We'd like to say a special big thank you to:

The 2144 teachers and principals that are proactively growing the next generation of environmental stewards by connecting their students to nature through Schools Tree Day.

The 263 councils who have gave their residents a fantastic opportunity to Get Outside and Grow, from running planting events to educational activities and providing support and resources to schools and groups. 

The 357 Landcare, Bushcare, Friends groups, Conservation Volunteers, Trees 4 Life, environmental groups and community groups that help nature thrive all year round. If you'd love to join their efforts, most local councils can connect you with local groups. 

The generous businesses that have either donated resources or helped fund their local events, including 155 Toyota dealers, 160 Bunnings stores, over 100 independent nurseries, and many more.

All the wonderful people who joined us by planting the trees of tomorrow in their neighbourhoods and in their own home. We hope you enjoy watching them grow and take special pride in your new greener space.   

If you'd like to make Tree Day even better next year, please send us your feedback!

Stay tuned for the official 2013 results!
