International Day of Forests was also commemorated with tree plantings activity as the main highlights throughout Vanuatu. In Port Vila, the Department of Forests organized it in a very unique way in collaboration with the Prime Minister’s Office, Public Service Commission, and forestry stakeholders were invited to celebrate the day at the Prime Minister’s Office. The Prime Minister and the other officials took part in planting a seedling at the Prime Minister’s premises and at the same time beautifying it with a few endemic species of Vanuatu.
That year's event was the "National Tree Planning Day" on 21st June 2018
