Tree Week 2015
Tree Week takes place from Sunday 4 October to Sunday 11 October 2015. It is an opportunity for us all to reflect on how important trees are in an urban environment.
The Tree Council has organised Tree Week to coincide with the Auckland Heritage Festival once again. We have two main events during Tree Week – full details are below.
If you would like to organise an event during Tree Week then please let us know and we will promote it for you.
