National Tree Day

National Tree Day, proudly sponsored by Toyota Australia, was co-founded in 1996 by Planet Ark and Olivia Newton-John. It has now grown in to Australia's largest community tree planting and nature protection event as we strive to see over one million new trees, shrubs and grasses planted each year. 

National Tree Day is a call to action for all Australians to put their hands in the earth and give back to their community. Each year, about 300,000 people volunteer their time to engage in environmental activities that educate individuals about the world around them. It's a day to venture outdoors and get to know your community, and most importantly, to have fun!

Schools Tree Day


The last Friday in July is dedicated to schools celebrating Tree Day. Each year, more than 3000 students participate nationwide in environmental activities that educate individuals about the world around them. 

Join thousands of people in making a difference and create positive environmental change for your community.
