Co-founded by Planet Ark and Olivia Newton-John in 1996, and the event has grown into the biggest community tree-planting and nature protection event in Australia. This year there’s a call to plant one million new trees in Australia.

This day is an excellent opportunity to head outdoors and learn about your community while having fun improving the environment. National Tree Day is a great day to lead an assembly about the importance of trees and how they help to keep our environment and atmosphere safe for us to live in.

You could focus your lessons on National Tree Day around how trees function as an important habitat for lots of different types of wildlife. Looking into the different types of trees that can be found around the world can be a nice lead in to a topic on different environmental habitats.
