This year’s National Tree Day (2021) will run a little differently than usual, but we still encourage you to get involved and support your local community.
The health and safety of our volunteers, and the broader community, is of paramount importance to us and we ask for your cooperation and caution in these difficult circumstances.
It is a requirement that all National Tree Day Event/Site Coordinators must ensure that their National Tree Day event is compliant with their state’s/territory’s restrictions and planning requirements. You can find the latest restrictions for your state/territory here.
On top of that, National Tree Day Event/Site Coordinators have primary responsibility for hosting a COVID-safe event. The development of a COVID Safety Plan is an important step in ensuring that event planners keep staff and the broader community safe, as well as ensuring compliance with any legal and administrative obligations.
We will continue to monitor the current environment and public health advice in the lead up to National Tree Day weekend. At any point in time, we are able to postpone activity if an area becomes a local hotspot, to ensure the health and safety of our volunteers and of the broader community.
We thank our volunteers across Australia for their support in ensuring that National Tree Day can continue to be held in a safe way.
If you have any further questions about running your event or attending an event safely, please get in touch with the Tree Day support team at firstname.lastname@example.org - we're here to help!
