National Tree Day


  • Schools Tree Day Friday 31st July 2020 and 
  • National Tree Day Sunday 2nd August 2020

Traditionally National Tree Day is held in the last weekend in July, as this is the most appropriate day for the majority of regions.

National Tree Day is Australia’s biggest community tree-planting event.

National Tree Day, proudly sponsored by Toyota Australia, was co-founded in 1996 by Planet Ark and Olivia Newton-John. It has now grown into Australia’s largest community tree planting and nature protection event. Planet Ark is asking Australians to help us plant one million new native trees and shrubs across the country.

National Tree Day is a call-to-action for all Australians to come together and give back to their community. Annually, about 300,000 people volunteer their time to engage in environmental activities that educate individuals about the world around them. It’s a day to venture outdoors and get to know your community, and most importantly, to have fun!


Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic across Australian communities and the ongoing uncertainty around potential restrictions on gatherings, Planet Ark has made the difficult decision to cancel official National Tree Day planting events this year.

We are still encouraging people where possible to plant in their own backyards and there are many other ways you can get involved. For other great ideas check out links below.
