National Tree Day serves as a celebration for all Canadians to appreciate the great benefits that trees provide us – clean air, wildlife habitat, reducing energy demand and connecting with nature.

Save the date!

This year National Tree Day is on Wednesday, September 25, 2019.

We will be celebrating from coast to coast this year, in cities like St. John’s, Montreal, Ottawa, Markham, Winnipeg and North Vancouver.

Each of these cities will celebrate by having ceremonies and tree-planting activities.

History of National Tree Day

On March 2, 2011 a private members motion to declare the Wednesday of National Forest Week, National Tree Day, received consent from the House of Commons. The motion was presented by Royal Galipeau, M.P., at the urging of Tree Canada.
