Tree- men­dous plant­ing ef­fort

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

THE City of Swan is call­ing on res­i­dents to help make a dif­fer­ence and join the 2018 Tril­lion Trees Chal­lenge launched in White­man Park last week­end. Hun­dreds of vol­un­teers planted more than 8000 tree seedlings at the park on Sun­day. Hazelmere- based char­ity Tril­lion Trees, for­merly named Men of the Trees, has been a Guin­ness World Record holder since 2014. Mayor David Lu­cas said the char­ity’s vol­un­teers and nurs­ery man­ager had planted more than 200,000 seedlings each year since 1986. Each year the City in­vested $ 20,000 in the Tril­lion Trees project and bought about 10,000 plants for res­i­dents in­ter­ested in plant­ing.
