National Tree Day
Posted 2nd January, 2012 by Development and Environment Team
Tumut Shire Council has participated in the National Tree Day since 2004.
The Tumut area and trees are inseparable. Whether it's the thousands of acres of Radiata pine trees that surround the region and provide so many jobs for the community, the massive red gums that line the Tumut River, the native trees of the majestic Kosciusko National Park, the fruit trees that help feed the country or the beauty of the deciduous trees that decorate our towns with brilliant colour at start of the cooler months. The Tumut area is certainly hooked on trees.
Tree day is about getting residents involved in the further greening of Tumut. From small trees and shrubs in town, to larger shrubs and trees in the rural areas. Growing trees and shrubs helps look after the soil, they provide homes for the birds and bees and above all, it is also a seriously addictive pastime. Trees and shrubs will provide a natural beauty to your piece of Australia.
