The tenth National Tree Day is almost upon us! Over the past ten years, Canadians have celebrated and planted trees across Canada on National Tree Day, which falls on the Wednesday of National Forest Week each year.

The benefits of trees to the environment, human health and our social well-being are well known. In our day-to-day lives however, these important benefits can be forgotten. We encourage Canadians to remember their love for trees and the beautiful memories they’ve helped create. Whether that’s from a favourite tree that served as a childhood castle, a strong tree for hanging a swing, or a tree that provides shade and comfort for a gathering with friends – it’s easy to connect with the magic of trees when we take a moment to reflect.

On Wednesday September 22, 2021, join Tree Canada, our sponsors, and Canadians across the country as we celebrate the magic of trees from coast to coast. For some, National Tree Day will be an opportunity to connect with the community in person (finally!) and plant trees together. For others, National Tree Day is an opportunity to learn more about trees or come to appreciate the ones in their neighbourhood.

On this National Tree Day, together or apart, let’s choose to celebrate trees, rekindle our gratitude for them and bring that appreciation into the year ahead.

Happy National Tree Day!
