National Tree Day is Australia’s largest tree-planting and nature care event. Each year over 200,000 people take part in National Tree Day events at thousands of sites organised by councils, schools, businesses, communities and Toyota Dealers across the country.
Participation in National Tree Day is fun, community-focused and helps deliver important environmental outcomes such as providing habitat for our local native flora and fauna, as well as being good for individual and community health and wellbeing.
Everyone is welcome to join in planting, anytime during the duration of the three events – no experience is required.
Residents are being asked to please wear long sleeved shirts, closed-in footwear and a hat.
