National Tree Day in Canada Date in the current year: September 28, 2016

National Tree Day in Canada Every year Canadians celebrate National Tree Day in September. This observance is not just a single day to remember about the value of trees. This is a part of a greater event, National Forest Week.

National Forest Week annually takes place in September. This event is organized and coordinated by Tree Canada, a non profit charitable organization promoting planting trees across Canada. The organization was established in 1992 and it created a number of programs aimed at preserving nature of Canada.

One of Tree Canada's programs is National Tree Day. It was inaugurated by the parliament of Canada in 2011 as a national day for planting trees. Annually a number of tree-relating educative events and activities are held on this day.

In addition to National Tree Day Canadian provinces also celebrate their regional Arbor Days. For instance, Nova Scotia celebrates Arbor Day on Thursday of the first full week in May. Prince Edward Island celebrates Arbor Day on the third Friday in May.
