National Tree Day

National Tree Day started in 1996 and has grown into Australia's largest community tree-planting and nature care event.

It’s a call to action for all Australians to get their hands dirty and give back to the community. ​​​

While every day can be Tree Day, we dedicate celebration of Schools Tree Day and National Tree Day to the last Friday in July, and first Sunday in August respectively.

In 2020, Schools Tree Day is Friday 31st July and National Tree Day is Sunday 2nd August.


2020 PUBLIC EVENTS CANCELLED

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic across Australian communities and the ongoing uncertainty around potential restrictions on gatherings, Planet Ark has made the difficult decision to cancel official National Tree Day planting events this year.

We are still encouraging people where possible to plant in their own backyards and there are many other ways you can get involved. For other great ideas check out links below.


Get Involved

Over 26 million trees have been planted by more than 5 million people, and this number continues to grow with the help of our dedicated volunteers around the country.
