Tree Dressing Day 2018

December 3


Tree dressing, in the first week of December, is based on many old customs from all over the world and at different times of the year.

Tree Dressing Day was initiated by Common Ground in 1990: we decorated a group of London Plane trees on the junction of Shaftesbury Avenue and High Holborn in Covent Garden with 150 large number, showing that EVERY TREE COUNTS! Since then, groups and individuals have dressed their trees all over the country in December.

Help to create your own social celebration of the trees in your place. This cross-cultural community expression for everyday nature could include storytelling, dance, music, hanging ribbons, shapes, shining lights, anything which draws attention to the trees we take for granted, an enjoyable first step towards taking more care of them.
