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 National Tree Day is on Wednesday, September 23, 2020.
While in years past this was a time to come together and celebrate with community planting events, our current situation with COVID-19 makes this year very different. That doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate together though, while staying apart!
The spirit of National Tree Day and all that trees bring to us is still 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.
