The annual event follows a national survey, showing 8 in 10 Australians agree that planting trees is an important part of creating a more sustainable future.

Rebecca Gilling from Planet Ark says National Tree Day is a great way for Eyre Peninsula locals to get closer to their community and do something positive for the environment. 

In Port Lincoln, Peter Kittle Toyota will be holding a free tree or plant giveaway on Saturday for locals to plant at home, whilst Whyalla locals can receive free plants on Saturday at the depot gates inside Ada Ryan Gardens.
