ARBOR WEEK, 01 - 07 SEPTEMBER 2008

Arbor Week is celebrated from the 1 - 7 September in South Africa annually throughout the country. It affords the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry and other stakeholders the opportunity to undertake a major national awareness programme re-iterating the value of trees and its key role towards sustaining our livelihoods, both now and for future generations.

Every Arbor Week celebration highlights two or three specific trees, one common and one rare species.

 

The three trees of the year for 2008 are: Harpephyllum caffrum (Wild Plum), Diospyros whyteana (Bladder-nut) and Markhamia zanzibarica (Bell bean tree).
