Arbor Week was celebrated in the first week of September at Tyger Valley College. Three monkey thorns, Acacia galpinii, were planted and poems were recited and planted with the trees in memory of this day. National Arbor Week serves to promote awareness for the need to plant and maintain indigenous trees throughout South Africa. Every Arbor Week celebration highlights two specific trees, one common and one rare species. This year’s Arbor Week, from 1 – 7 September, highlighted the monkey thorn as common tree and the tree fuchsia and round-leaved teak as rare trees.
