National Tree Day is Australia's biggest community tree-planting event!

This Planet Ark event is supported by Toyota Australia and Liverpool City Council. Over 23 million native trees and shrubs have been planted by more than 3.8 million volunteers since the first National Tree Day was held in 1996!

National Tree Day is an opportunity to get outside in nature and do something positive for your local environment and community.

Liverpool City Council is once again inviting local residents and their families to help celebrate the biggest tree planting event of the year – National Tree Day. It is a fun day out for the whole family – planting a tree is an activity that everyone can enjoy.

Date: Sunday 30 July 2017

Time: 9:00am to 12:00pm

Location: Brownes Farm Reserve - end of First Avenue, Hoxton Park

Each year, with the help of the local community, Council aims to plant over 3,000 locally native trees, shrubs and groundcovers. Planting locally native plants will provide food and shelter for native wildlife and enhance the amenity of the local area. There will be a face painter on site for children and an interactive native wildlife display for everyone to enjoy.

Participants are reminded to wear enclosed shoes, a hat, sunscreen and a long sleeved shirt, and to bring a water bottle and gloves if they have them. Council will provide all tools and refreshments, including a free BBQ lunch for all participants.

Schools are also encouraged to participate in tree planting. Each year approximately 2,500 preschools, primary and high schools around Australia participate in Schools Tree Day - a day especially designed for school students. It's a great opportunity for students to learn about the role of trees in the environment and contribute positively to the natural environment in which we live in.

The next Schools Tree Day will be held on Friday 28 July 2017. For more information visit the Schools Tree Day website.
