Scenic Rim Regional Council has again confirmed its support for the National Tree Day and Schools Tree Day 2012 by providing free trees to Scenic Rim schools.
Mayor John Brent and Planet Ark are calling on Scenic Rim residents and schools to plant a tree or shrub for Schools Tree Day on 27 July or National Tree Day on 29 July.
“I encourage anyone who wants to make a difference in their environment to get involved in a worthwhile community activity,” Said Mayor Brent.
“National Tree Day, an initiative of Planet Ark has partnered with the Scenic Rim Regional Council to help provide information and assistance to help make your tree planting a success”, said Mayor Brent.
“This year Council will provide trees to schools, preschools and kindergartens in the Region to help make a difference to our environment,” said Mayor Brent.
Schools can apply for free native trees that can be used for an event on the National Tree Day or Schools Tree Day.
