holiday for planting trees

Today is declared as "Day of Trees." It is a government initiative for afforestation (or reforestration?). People are having a holiday to plant trees. Macedonia had many forest fires last summer, and by this initiative it is expected to mitigate the damages from the fires. It seems about 2 million trees (same number of Macedonian population) will be planted today. For me, I feel just lucky for having an extra holiday, which was suddenly declared last week.
