It’s a green thumbs up for Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) with 200 native trees to be planted in Clifton as part of National Tree Day.
Toowoomba Regional Council’s Environment and Community portfolio leader, Cr Joe Ramia, is rolling up his sleeves for the big day that enables residents to get involved with the planting.
“Council is committed to keeping our region beautiful and green,” Cr Ramia said. “The Toowoomba region is regarded as one of the most liveable in Australia and it’s no wonder with our stunning gardens and beautiful trees.
“Council is supporting National Tree Day by supplying 200 native and endemic species for residents to help plant in Bethnal Park on Sunday 30 July from 9 am to 1 pm.
“There are a lot of trees to plant and we’re hoping everyone digs in and helps us for a fun, family-friendly day,” Cr Ramia said.
TRC has carefully selected 12 species of seedlings that will add diversity to the Clifton area and suit local environmental factors.
More than 1,400 street and park trees have been planted across the region in the past 12 months as part of Council’s avenue development project, streetscape improvement works and park upgrades.
People of all gardening abilities are encouraged to come along on the day.
