Macedonia's Ministry of Labour and Social Policy has announced the declaration of Wednesday, November 30, 2016, as another Tree-Planting national non-working public holiday for the citizens of the Republic of Macedonia.
Contrary to previous occasions (2011-11-22, 2011-03-28, 2010-11-17, 2010-03-28, 2009-11-12, 2008-11-18, and 2008-03-12), but as was the case for the past 2 years of record (2013-11-23 and 2012-11-15), it appears that this additional non-working public holiday will not be compensated by a nearby Saturday being declared a regular working day.
Such "Tree Day - Plant Your Future" public holiday were held regularly from 2008 until 2013, usually one being held in the spring and one in the fall, with the spring 2009, 2012, and 2013 tree planting days were held on Saturdays. However, since 2013, the practice of declaring Tree-Planting national non-working public holidays in the Republic of Macedonia had lapsed.
