Tree Festival in Viladrau

25/03/2023 - 26/03/2023

Viladrau celebrates the Tree Festival for another year!

Maybe many people don't know it, but the Tree Festival is a Catalan initiative of more than 100 years.

Faced with the alarming deforestation suffered by Catalonia at the end of the 19th century, the forestry engineer Rafael Puig i Valls promoted an innovative project where the school, supported by the city councils and the political and social classes, and the children as protagonists, became the true promoters of a new society concerned about its environment.

The first Educational Tree Festival was held in Sant Joan de les Abadesses in 1899.

In 1900, at the first International Forestry Congress, held in Paris, and the proposal of Puig i Valls, the celebration of the Tree Festival in all European countries was unanimously accepted. Alfonso XIII, by royal decree, establishes the celebration of the festival in all the towns and schools of the Spanish State.

Viladrau was the first municipality in Catalonia to join the celebration of the centenary of the Tree Festival. Since then it has been carried out without interruption.

In the organization of the Viladrau Tree Festival, the School, the school's AMPA, the City Council, the Music School and other Associations of the town participate in a coordinated manner. Maintaining the philosophy in which it was created, the Viladrau Tree Festival combines educational activities with recreational activities:

  • Educational outing to work on an environmental issue about our forests.
  • Educational work in the classroom and edition of a booklet based on the work of the students.
  • Recreational and cultural festival with the participation of villagers and visitors: parliaments, distribution of the edited script, cultural activities, musical performances, planted and vermouth. A complete Tree Party.
