National Tree Week is celebrating its 30th anniversary starting on 21st November and the National Tree Council wants as many people as possible to get involved. Their target is to get one million trees planted by the beginning of December. From Durham to Epping, in counties all across the country, people are already preparing by gathering seeds.
Across Australia one million trees have just been planted for their National Tree Day. Organised by the Environmental Foundation Planet Ark, National Tree Day has grown into the nation’s largest tree planting event. Each year some 300,000 school students and community members come together to plant native trees and commemorate the importance of trees to the environment and humanity.
In preparation for Schools Tree Day, all young people in Australia were taught about the role of trees and how to plant and look after them. Since starting in 1996, more than one million volunteers have planted over ten million trees at 3,100 sites throughout the continent.
Tree Planting Week is an opportunity to appreciate all the wooded areas that make the world beautiful and keep our environment strong. The Tree Council UK has recently published Tree Planting Planning and Practice, a leaflet which is full of helpful tips on such things as choosing a planting site and selecting the appropriate species.
