52 Trees Planted Along Greenbah Road
National Tree Day
Thirty-six volunteers reconnected with nature over the weekend to plant 52 trees along Greenbah Road Moree (opposite Boonery Road) as part of National Tree Day.
Moree Plains Shire Council's Senior Compliance Officer Belinda Olsen explained National Tree Day is Australia's biggest community tree-planting and nature care event.
"Moree Plains Shire Council proudly supported National Tree Day, along with the Friends of the Botanical Gardens Committee and Tait Toyota Moree," said Mrs Olsen.
Mrs Olsen would like to personally thank each and every volunteer for their fabulous efforts and for giving up their time on Sunday morning.
"The community-focus morning was tree-mendous," said Mrs Olsen. She added "Each and every person helped address important environmental issues like the loss of habitat for native wildlife, soil salinity and erosion and the activity was also good for individual and community health."
The volunteers were provided with shirts, gloves and gardening tools, along with a sausage sizzle at the conclusion of the planting.
