💚 We are so close to National Tree Day's 10th Anniversary!

🌲 Come out and celebrate with us by planting trees!

🌳 Tree Canada invites you to commemorate the 10th anniversary of National Tree Day! More then ever before, the pandemic has shown our need for trees and green spaces. So, let’s come together (finally!) and celebrate the great benefits that trees provide us – clean air, wildlife habitat, reducing energy demand and connecting with nature.

🌴 This year National Tree Day is on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, (IN TWO DAYS!) and we will be celebrating from coast to coast in cities like St. John’s, Montreal, Ottawa, Markham, Winnipeg, and North Vancouver.

🌱 Those who have signed up for it, can take a look at this web page for all the details
