Corporate National Tree Day

There are a host of reasons why trees are good for the environment, not least of which is their ability to improve air quality, mask urban noise and beautify surroundings, which helps attract business to the area.  National Tree Day is an opportunity to do something positive for your local environment and community and to reconnect with nature. 

National Tree Day is a great team building event for staff and acts as an entry point for greater community involvement and environmental awareness.

Knox City Council coordinates several tree-planting events in July each year - a community planting day where everyone can get involved and another planting day for businesses.
