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.
This year we’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of National Tree Day on Wednesday, September 22, 2021!
We’re happy to be celebrating in 12 communities across Canada!
The spirit of National Tree Day and all that trees bring to us is worth celebrating, and on this page right up until National Tree Day, you will find resources and ideas that will help you take root with your community around trees this fall.
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.
Let’s show our gratitude to trees for all that they provide by supporting the greening of our communities on this special 10th anniversary of National Tree Day.
