National Tree Planting Day

Sunday 2 August

This year Council's National Tree Day event is going virtual! Help increase Frankston City's Urban Forest and biodiversity by planting local indigenous trees and plants in your backyard — provided FREE from the Frankston Indigenous Nursery (numbers are limited).

Register for your FREE plant now.

The registration process will include selecting a suitable time slot to pick up your plant from the nursery before Sunday 2 August. Care instructions will be included with your plant.

While we are unable to hold our usual community planting event at a local reserve due to COVID-19, we still want to link all our planters together and celebrate the important work all our National Tree Day participants are doing for our environment.

We ask that everyone who registers for a National Tree Day plant take a pic of you or a family member planting in your backyard and share it with the hashtags: #FrankstonCity #FrankstonLovesTrees

Schools Tree Planting Day

Participating in Schools Tree Day is a great way for your school to contribute to the environment.

In 2020, Council is proud to once again support this important event however, due to COVID-19, we will be doing things a bit differently and providing tools and resources for schools to plant using social distancing protocols. For more information visit Education and Resources.
