Why More Trees?
As boring as it may seem compared to solar panels and hybrid cars, planting trees is one of the most powerful and affordable ways to make a personal difference for the environment. And it’s a fun and educational activity to do with kids, too.
As we learned in primary school science, trees are essential to life. They create the very air we breathe and filter air pollution.
Trees also build soil and help soak up stormwater before it can create a flood, and they offer energy-saving shade that reduces global warming and creates habitat for thousands of different species.
Most importantly, trees sequester carbon, helping to remove carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the air, which cools the earth. In fact, a mature canopy tree absorbs enough carbon and releases enough oxygen to sustain two human beings!
You really can’t go wrong by planting trees!
So Adapt a Tree – It’s Good For Everyone
The Western Downs Regional Council is bringing more trees to the streets for their popular Adopt a Street Tree program in 2018.
Council’s Adopt a Street Tree program is open to all towns (that includes Chinchilla) across the Western Downs and it’s FREE to register your interest.
Registrations for this year’s planting program are now open and will close Friday 16 March 2018.
Register your interest by calling 1300 COUNCIL or filling out our online form.
Kings Park Accommodation just registered our interest to adopt a tree, why don’t you give it a go too.
