2015 National Tree Day Outcomes
The Results Are In
Planet Ark’s biggest campaign, National Tree Day, has continued to bear fruit for the environment and for the people involved with this year being the biggest ever. We had more sites, more activities and more plants that ever before.
Around 300,000 committed and engaged Australians got involved in Tree Day activities at more than 2,300 schools and hundreds of sites by run Landcare and BushCare groups, community networks and workplaces. Our Major Sponsor Toyota helped out around the country and made the whole event possible while sponsor Bunnings Warehouse pitched in at schools and in-store.
Positive Environmental Action
All that volunteered labour which helped plant 1.2 million native trees, shrubs, grasses and, edibles and has been valued at $5.6 million a great outcome for the environment.
National Tree Day is a great day to develop a deeper connection with nature.
Mark your calendars for this year - Sunday July 31st is National Tree Day and Friday July 29th is Schools Tree Day.
