How you can celebrate National Tree Day

The City of Sydney and Planet Ark are calling for volunteers to help plant 1500 native plants at Dalgal Way, Forest Lodge, from 10am to 2pm on National Tree Day, 28 July.

“We’re creating a greener and cleaner city by planting trees in our streets and parks, and creating more sustainable habitats for local wildlife,” Lord Mayor Clover Moore said.

“National Tree Day is just one of the many great ways you can help green the city, make our parks and streets more beautiful and create a more liveable city. It’s an opportunity to get your hands dirty, meet new people and take positive environmental action.”

This year’s tree planting event will take place near the popular Tramsheds at Harold Park. Sydneysiders are invited to bring the whole family along to join in the planting fun and afterwards enjoy some tasty tucker at a sausage sizzle.

A number of native species will be planted, including fast growing shrubs providing ground cover, perennial herbs, native grasses and flowering shrubs providing food and habitats for butterflies.  

National Tree Day was co-founded in 1996 by Planet Ark and Olivia Newton-John. It is Australia's largest community tree planting and nature protection event.

I do have some bulbs to plant which should be in bloom for spring :)


Suze - I put some Daffodil bulbs in a large pot 3 weeks ago and low and behold they are 2 cm above the soil already. We are having lovely warm days here and some spring plants are starting to get buds on them.  {:)

I have some jonquil blossoming at the moment .... my daffodils still in the fridge, so when I plant them they should take off ...fingers crossed.

National Tree day? Whoopee!, I will take my little hatchet and cut one down right away.

Story is that Singapore is planting 3 million trees a year. Soon you won't be able to see Singapore for the trees!
