Tamar NRM and the City of Launceston would like to warmly thank everyone who was able to join the 775 other community participants to plant 3,723 trees plant at the Launceston Waste Centre site between 28-31 July 2022.
We planted a whopping 74% of our 5,000 tree target, and any trees not planted during the event will continue to be planted at the site.
By participating, you contributed to the work needed to increase our local bushland and provide additional habitat for the local wildlife. These trees also contribute to the drawing down of carbon from the atmosphere – a small, but not unimportant, response to global warming caused by greenhouse gases.
We sensed from participants an appetite to ‘do something’ in response to the environmental challenges being faced. We hope this event provided an opportunity for you to be part of a positive, ‘hands-on’ action.
Thanks again – your energy and enthusiasm made this a fun event.
