Each year, around 3000 schools across Australia celebrate National Tree Day on the dedicated Schools Tree Day. This year, Schools Tree Day is Friday 27 July. Planet Ark’s website provides all the links and resources for schools to register, plan relevant lessons and more.
A key part of celebrating National Tree Day for schools is planting native seedlings. Over the past twelve years, Sustainable Timber Tasmania has donated more than 90 000 native seedlings to support Tasmanian schools celebrating National Tree Day.
This year, our nursery staff are busily propagating more than 8700 seedlings of 15 native tree and shrub species to gift to Tasmanian schools. The link below provides information on available species to assist schools in deciding what to order.
We recently reached out to hundreds of Tasmanian schools to encourage participation in this great event. Schools have been provided with a link to our online ordering form. If your school has been missed and wants to be involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
