Arbor Day in Namibia Date in the current year: October 14, 2016

Arbor Day in Namibia Many African countries, including Namibia, actively participate in planting trees on Arbor Day. This national observance annually takes place in Namibia on the second Friday in October.

Namibia is one of few countries to specifically address conservation and protection of natural resources. The Namibian climate provides about 300 sunny days per year and short raining seasons last from September to November and from February to April. Planting trees in Namibia during October is the best time for their taking roots.

The first Arbor Day was celebrated in Namibia in 1991, but this day didn't attract much attention and coverage. Only during 2000s a number of trees planted generally increased. Annual celebration of Arbor Day in Namibia is marked by one distinctive feature. Every year Namibians chose a national tree and then it's saplings are planted across the territory of the state. Many seedlings are distributed across the school to encourage children to participate in reafforestation.
