About National Tree Day
National Tree Day is Australia’s largest tree-planting and nature care event. Tree Day is an opportunity to do something positive for your local environment and community, and reconnect with nature. National Tree Day started in 1996 and since then more than 4 million people have planted over 24 million trees and plants and it’s still growing.
National Tree Day aims to inspire, educate and recruit Australians to actively care for our unique land and create future generations of committed environmental custodians.
When is National Tree Day?
Traditionally it is always held in the last weekend in July, as this is the most appropriate day for the majority of regions. The dates for 2018 are:
- Schools Tree Day – Friday 27 July 2018
- National Tree Day – Sunday 29 July 2018
However, if these dates don’t suit, any day can be Tree Day.
So start planning a National Tree Day event, or look out for activities happening in your local area.
