Did you know that National Forest Week is celebrated across Canada in an effort to raise awareness about how valuable Canada's forests are? Established in 1920 as Forest Fire Prevention Week, the intent was to encourage a greater awareness about Canadian forests. Renamed in 1967 to National Forest Week, it now encompasses many different environmental aspects about Canada's forest resources.
Established in 2011, the Wednesday in National Forest Week was declared as National Tree Day. National Tree Day serves as a celebration for all Canadians to appreciate the great benefits that trees provide us.
