Tree's  Day is a reminder of the importance of protecting woodlands.

It is celebrated on March 21, that is, the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere and the first day of autumn in the southern hemisphere.

World Tree Day, World Forestry Day also called, was, in principle, a recommendation by the World Forestry Congress held in Rome in 1969. This recommendation was accepted by the United Nations Organization for Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in 1971.

Before other countries had already established independently Tree Day. The first was Sweden who instituted it in 1840. In Paraguay, celebrates Tree's Day since 1904 at the initiative of Moises Bertoni, who originally set on July 14. Then in 1954 the Ministry of Education set the date of June 19 to commemorate Tree's Day.
