More than 250,000 people at over 3,200 Tree Day sites have put an estimated 1.2 million native trees, plants and shrubs into the ground to date as part of Planet Ark's National Tree Day this year! We owe a huge thank you to all the fantastic site coordinators who help bring their communities closer together, connect them with nature, and help improve their local environment. Tree cheers for all your amazing support!

If you didn't get to participate in Tree Day or are looking for other ways to contribute and grow a greener tomorrow, why not try:

  • Participating at one of the dozens of Tree Day sites taking place throughout the year. So, if you can't get enough of tree planting, find a site near you.
  • Be the change you want to see and talk to us about starting your own planting site. We may be able to help connect you with someone who can support your initiative. Call our Tree Day Hotline on 1300 88 5000.
  • Incorporate 30 minutes of green time into your day, and see why planting trees is just what the doctor ordered. Read our recent report Planting Trees.
  • Connect with nature on a more regular basis and join your local Landcare group, Conservation Volunteers or a community garden near you. They'd love to hear from you.

If you did join us on Tree Day and want to tell us how to make it even better next year, please fill out our quick National Tree Day survey so we can continually improve our much-loved iconic event.
