Thanksgiving tree planting day
Plant a tree to say thank you to mother nature for all she gives you.
28th November 2013
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 28th 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.
You can buy a tree seedling or small tree from your local garden centre, 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.
This is our 2nd Tree Planting Day
Following the success of our first Tree Planting Day we decided that giving back to nature should be something we do on a regular bases. The tree planting day calendar will be available soon.
Our first tree planting day was in honour of Global Cooperation Day, initiated by Liz Greenwell. All of our tree planting days are dedicated to Global Cooperation and you can see some of the trees planted here.
You and your tree could feature in our movie
Upload your pictures and videos of your tree planting and we’ll create a short movie for each of our tree planting days. Promise to plant
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 (23rd November to 1st December 2013). So plant a tree with us on the 28th November to give thanks and celebrate trees.
Giving back to nature challenge
Promote the value of trees and nature with our giving back to nature challenge. It’s a lesson plan for schools and it’s also great for CSR with employees. Read more.

Plant trees on November 28th
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.
Register your promise to plant.
Organise your tree seedling from a local nursery, florist or garden centre. Request help if you need it.
Upload your photos and/or video.
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.
During the years trees gave us shelter in many ways, food and so many other things. Now its the time the Human race gives something back to trees – Security for each tree. (Tree Planting Day 1. See their tree)Joseph Zammit Le Meridien St. Julians Hotel & Spa, Starwood Hotels
