Canberra Tree Week is a celebration of all things trees in Canberra. Our city is full of beautiful, unique and exceptional trees and forests that provide many positive benefits to the community.
In 2019, Canberra Tree Week was held from the 4 May to the 12 May to showcase the beautiful autumn colour of Canberra’s trees.
Thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate Canberra Tree Week in May 2019. We greatly appreciate the support of the event organisers and all those who participated in the many amazing activities during tree week.
Tree Week 2019 was officially launched by Minister Chris Steel, Minister for City Services, and Tyronne Bell, an Ngunnawal descendant on Friday 3 May. As part of the launch, Mr Tyronne Bell spoke about the importance of trees to the traditional owners of our land. We would like to thank Tyronne for sharing his family’s connection with trees and their importance to the traditional owners of our land.
There were so many great events held during the week including the ACT Tree Climbing Championships, hug a tree day, a harvest market stall and kite making at the National Arboretum Canberra, a great variety of guided walks, a mountain bike ride through Kowen pine plantation, tree plantings, tree themed story times at local library branches, art workshops, a forestry and education world café and many more.
