National Tree Day and Schools Tree Day provide all Australians with an opportunity to do something positive for the environment and reconnect with nature. Hundreds of thousands of Australians planted over 1 million native trees, shrubs and grasses at more than 3300 Tree Day events in 2012.
Each year, around 200 000 Australian school students participate in a special National Tree Day event designed just for children –Schools Tree Day! It’s a wonderful opportunity for children to make a contribution to Australia’s natural environment and have lots of fun at the same time.
In 2013, National Tree Day will be on Sunday 28th July and Schools Tree Day will be on Friday 26th July.
