New trees planted across south east­ern sub­urbs.

MANY hands make light work, es­pe­cially when that work is fun and a lit­tle bit dirty.

Res­i­dents young and old from around the south­east­ern sub­urbs were among those who vol­un­teered to plant thou­sands of trees as part of Na­tional Tree Day cel­e­bra­tions.

Lo­cally, Bun­nings Ware­house Ar­madale em­ploy­ees vis­ited Gwynne Park Pri­mary School to help stu­dents plant a va­ri­ety of na­tives in their gar­dens, while home-schooled stu­dents and young­sters from By­ford Child Care Cen­tre joined Toy­ota Madding­ton and Can­ning Vale em­ploy­ees at the Ser­pen­tine River Bridge to plant trees.

The cities of Ar­madale and Gos­nells and Shire of Ser­pen­tine Jar­rah­dale also ran tree plant­ing events at Goolam­rup Re­serve in Kelm­scott, Tom Bate­man Re­serve in Thorn­lie and Ser­pen­tine’s Arnold Road re­spec­tively.
