National Tree Day History

National Tree Day is Australia's largest community nature care and tree-planting event. The day aims to plant trees, reconnect with nature and do something positive for the local environment. Participants unite to protect and preserve Australia's natural environment by benefiting from personal wellbeing and healthy outcomes for their bodies.

National Tree Day began in 1996 and it has since been celebrated annually on the last Sunday of July. A spin off celebration now exists for schools, Schools Tree Day, and is celebrated on the last Friday of July.

National Tree Day Top Events and Things to Do

  • Plant a tree. Gather with your friends or family and select a piece of property on which you can plant a new tree. Planting them closer to buildings can drastically reduce air conditioning costs.

  • Spread awareness for the day on social media using hashtags #NationalTreeDay, #TreeDay and #PlantaTree.
