SA Arbor Week

Hey, word nerds MSB celebrates Arbor Week in the first week of September annually with The Department of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries (DAFF), as the custodian of forestry in South Africa.When you love books you love trees.

September is also heritage month and as we celebrate Arbor Week, we also focus on the country’s champion trees which include some of the oldest, largest and culturally significant trees. These include the Sophia Town Oak Tree and the Sagole Baobab Tree in Limpopo, which are part of our heritage.

National Arbor Week is an opportune time to call on all South Africans to plant mores trees as a practical and symbolic gesture of sustainable environmental management.
