Three million trees all ready to help green up Queensland
AN LNP government will plant three million trees in Queensland over six years.
Shadow environment minister Dr Christian Rowan will today release a $10.5 million Greener Queensland plan.
“We have a strong track record of helping to preserve the environment through our environmental grants, koala habitat program and litter prevention, and this commitment will further help to enhance Queensland as a clean, green and sustainable state,” Dr Rowan said.
“An LNP government will lead the way in delivering real solutions to future-proofing Queensland’s environment by planting three million trees.
Competitive grants would be available to individuals and land care groups.
The Member for Mount Ommaney Tarnya Smith said the LNP would also encourage Queenslanders to plant more trees in their own back yards.
She said trees promoted biodiversity, produced oxygen and helped combat the greenhouse effect, with one large tree producing the daily oxygen supply for four people. DES HOUGHTON
