Love a Tree Day

Red Maple

When is Love a Tree Day? This holiday is always celebrated on May 16

It’s Love a Tree Day. So on this May 16 holiday, go out and give a tree a great big hug. Or, climb up into your favorite tree, and share some quality time with it. You will both benefit from the experience.

Trees are a good thing. They give us shade, comfort, and warmth. They give off oxygen, too. There are many, many benefits provided by trees. So, you have good reason to love a tree or two.

Everyone has a favorite kind of tree. Use today to identify a tree you love, and to pamper it. Give it a trim. Eliminate competitors around it. Feed it a dose of fertilizer. Tree spikes work great. And, give the tree some water, if it is thirsty.

Important Note: On Love a Tree Day, your attention must be placed on trees. A bush or a shrub just won’t do.

History and Origin of Love a Tree Day

Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day. It follows a few weeks after Arbor Day. But, we did not find a connection between these two days.

Some internet websites refer to this holiday as a “National” day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.
