Thanksgiving tree planting day

Plant a tree to give thanks for all that you have.

It’s time to give back to nature by planting a tree on November the 23rd to say thank you for everything that you have in your life. The air you breathe, the food you eat and the products you use all come from the same source. By giving back to nature you will also be helping other people that don’t have as much as you. A healthier planet will be able to look after more people.

Thanksgiving Tree Planting Day

You can buy a tree seedling or small tree from your local garden center, florist or nursery. You can plant a tree in your garden, for your local community or even in a plant pot for your balcony. If it’s too cold to plant outside keep your tree indoors until spring. It’s the tree planting ACT that counts.

Inspired by Thanksgiving day

Thanksgiving is mainly celebrated in North America. It’s a day of giving thanks for the harvest of the preceding year and also to think about the less fortunate. What better way to give thanks than to plant a tree to help restore our natural resources and create a healthier planet that can look after us all. Giving back to nature is something you should all do no matter where you are.

National Tree Week

National Tree Week is organised by The Tree Council and is the UK’s largest annual tree celebration (25th of November to 3rd December 2023). So plant a tree with us on the 23rd of November to give thanks and celebrate trees.

Plant trees on Thanksgiving November 23rd

It’s really easy to find some trees to plant locally. Your local garden centre, florist or nursery can supply you with small trees or seedlings. You can plant a tree in your garden, in a pot for your terrace or balcony, in your local school or park (if you have permission)… If you are stuck for ideas or cannot get a tree to plant just contact us for help.

  • Organize your tree seedling from a local nursery, florist or garden center.
  • Request help if you need it.
  • Enjoy, care and show your respect for nature!

* If it’s not a good time of year to plant outside in your area you can still participate. Plant your tree in a plant pot and care for it until the time is right to plant outside or transplant to a bigger pot.
