Tree- mendous planting effort
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.
