Schools plant native trees for native species on National Tree Day 2017

national tree day 2017

Busselton Toyota and GeoCatch teamed up with local schools to plant trees for native species.

Students from Our Lady of the Cape Primary, Georgiana Molloy Anglican School
and Geographe Primary all took time to plant native trees to create more habitats
for possums.

Each school spent a day planting the trees on their campus, to encourage more
native flora and fauna to flourish.

All tree planting days were a huge success, with students learning about possums and why native species are important, before getting stuck into the planting.

Busselton Toyota Manager Jed Teague said it was great
to see so many students getting out and improving the environment.

All the students have been great, they are so enthusiastic and really enjoy being outside, it has been a lot of fun to work with the schools and Geo Catch.”

Since Planet Ark launched National Tree Day in 1996, more than 22 million native trees have been planted. Capel Primary will be hosting another tree planting day in the coming weeks.
