Welcome to our website!
Arbor Day UK is a tree planting & tree care advocacy organisation – a voluntary not-for-profit organisation – with a mission to plant trees, celebrate trees and celebrate the people that work with trees.
Unlike many other countries around the world, the UK lacks a celebratory day for trees – & a day that represents & supports the arboricultural industry (“tree care industry”). Working with the Arbor Day Foundation( arborday.org ) we are celebrating an Arbor Day at the end of each tree planting season, where we reflect on the success of our efforts – & we encourage others to join in, in ways that suit them.
We celebrated our first Arbor Day on the 6th of February 2020, at Myerscough College, Lancashire, England – which is our current ‘hub’ for activities – although we hope to see other institutions soon taking up our idea & also celebrating an Arbor Day too.
