Big scale tree plant­ing keeps Biloela Scouts busy

Central Telegraph - - NEWS | THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY -

TREE plant­ing was the name of the game on the week­end for the Biloela Scouts.

The lo­cal scout group was re­vived last year and quickly grew in num­bers.

Dur­ing the day the young scouts and lead­ers joined with busi­nesses in the com­mu­nity to plant 104 na­tive trees at their camp grounds.

The trees and plant­ing equip­ment were do­nated by new Callide Val­ley Toy­ota own­ers, Wayne and Hilary Harth.

Farm­stuff also do­nated an elec­tric fence ig­niter to pro­tect the newly planted trees and the Ba­nana Shire Coun­cil pro­vided mulch to keep the trees moist while they get es­tab­lished.

The day fin­ished with a camp sing-a-long and and skits.
