These Arbor day reports contain plans of the plantings for each of the years 1961 to 1969. These reports are from the Nanango State School. Arbor Day was an annual day when shrubs and trees were planted by the teachers and students and was held in all Queensland state schools. This series contains the printed annual reports which were then filled in by the school. The Arbor Day reports record the following details: school name, school number, head teacher's name, average school attendance for the previous month, date Arbor Day was held, when the holes for planting were prepared, who the planting was done by (teacher, pupils, parents, committee, or paid labour), nature of soil, manure used, soil supplied, number and species of trees planted, where and by whom the trees were planted, name of mulch, type of tree guards, how many trees were planted the previous year and how many of those survived, total number of trees in the grounds and their condition, number of dead trees and the reason for their loss, attendance of parents and committee, interest taken in the Arbor Day movement by the committee and parents and general remarks. The earlier reports (c.1920) contain twenty-four 'Hints for Arbor Day' printed on the back of the report form. Arbor Day reports may also include plans of the school grounds indicating the locations of both the new trees planted and the existing trees.

Historical Note: Each year six trees were supplied to each participating school by the Public Instruction Department (after 1957 the Education Department). Additional trees required by the schools were to be obtained by local effort. Each year a list of trees and shrubs was made available to Queensland schools.
