“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago and the next best time is today!”
Chinese Proverb

Welcome to Tree Day! Tree Day takes place on the third Wednesday of September every year! Tree Day is a celebration of all the amazing and important benefits trees provide like clean air, soil stabilizations, shelter, food for wildlife and more!

This year at CWF, we are starting our Tree Day celebrations early with TD Friends of the Environment!  As part of TD Tree Days, on Sunday, September 13, volunteers from local TD Branches and the community will be planting 150 trees on the 10 acres behind CWF’s head office in Kanata, Ontario. The trees will provide more shelter and food for local wildlife and make CWF’s property a true haven for biodiversity to thrive.

Become part of the movement and take part in this year’s Tree Day celebrations:

  1.  Sign the pledge that you’ll plant a tree this fall and share it on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram with the hashtag #TreeDay and tag @CWF_FCF.
  2. Celebrate Tree Day by symbolically adopting an animal who makes its home in a woodland or forest like the black bear, red fox, and spotted owl. Proceeds help CWF’s habitat conservation efforts.

  3. Participate in CWF’s By Popular Vote! Monthly Photo Contest. The theme? Tree Day! Submit a picture of your favourite tree or treed area. You can also share it on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram with the hashtag #TreeDay and tag @CWF_FCF.
  4. Share a picture of an outdoor area with trees that holds a special place in your heart with us on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram and hashtag it with #treeday

Happy Tree Day!
