National Tree Day
Sydney City Toyota's involvement in National Tree Day has been a long term partnership. In 2011, we contributed to planting more than 1 million trees, shrubs and grasses at over 2900 Tree Day events Australia.
National Tree Day and Schools Tree Day combine to make Australia's biggest community tree-planting and nature care event. Co-ordinated by Planet Ark and proudly sponsored by Toyota, these are special days for all Australians to help out by planting and caring for native trees and shrubs to improve the environment in which they live.
National Tree Day was co-founded by Olivia Newton-John and Planet Ark in 1996 and since then more than 2.8 million volunteers have planted over 17 million native trees and shrubs! It's a day to get down and get your hands dirty to help the planet!
Each year, we welcome schools in our community to participate in tree planting by supply seedlings and promotional material to educate and stimulate interest in the environment. If you would like more information or have your school participate in the upcoming National Schools Tree Day, please contact Michelle Fenton.
