- Canadians encouraged to branch out and celebrate trees in their
community as part of National Tree Day -
OTTAWA, Sept. 24, 2012 /CNW/ - We've all climbed in them, sat under them
and ate fruit from them, but have we ever taken the time to truly
appreciate them? With National Tree Day - Canada's official day to
celebrate trees - on Wednesday, September 26, 2012, it's time to show
our nation's trees just how much we care.
Made possible by Tree Canada and national sponsors - MAJESTA, Nissan and
TELUS - National Tree Day encourages Canadians to take part in local
activities to celebrate trees in their community. This year, hundreds
of activities and events are taking place across the country, including
tree plantings, forestry walks, green space beautification projects,
and planting tutorials with the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association.
All Canadians are encouraged to visit nationaltreeday.ca to learn more about National Tree Day activities in their community or
to register an event. Events can be anything from planting and
maintaining trees to simply taking the time to talk about the
importance of trees.
About National Tree Day
Created in 2011 through a private members motion in the House of
Commons, National Tree Day now occurs on the Wednesday of National
Forest Week each September. National Tree Day encourages Canadians to
get together to celebrate and appreciate the great benefits that trees
provide, including clean air, wildlife habitat, reducing energy demand
and connecting people with nature.
