Tree Planting Project in Malmsbury

9 September 2012 | General Interest

An excursion to Malmsbury was arranged for the children in Year 5/6AM on Thursday 6th September, as part of the Tree Planting Project program. The excursion allowed chidlren to help plant 350 trees. The trees have been grown from seed by the children. The trees will grow up and help give shade to the cows in the summer and stop the cold wind in the winter. The trees will also provide shelter for birds, possums and koalas. We have all been told about carbon in the atmosphere and about global warming; planting trees is a wonderful way of reducing the carbon in the atmosphere and turning it into living timber.
