Thousands of trees up for grabs
THOUSANDS of koala food trees will be given away next month as Somerset Regional Council hold a free tree day.
The promotion will be held in the courtyard of the Simeon Lord Room near the Esk Library on Heap St on Saturday, February 9.
Parking will be available in the library carpark and residents will need to bring their own boxes or bags to transport the trees.
The trees will be distributed between 8am-noon and will be available on a first-in, bestdressed scenario.
Documentation and/or photo identification will need to be provided with a Somerset address.
Somerset Regional Council Mayor Graeme Lehmann said this free tree event was being held to complement numerous council initiatives that targeted environmental awareness.
There will other native trees and shrubs available.
