School Tree Planting

by ConnectBelmont, almost 5 years ago

The City of Belmont recently held a Tree Planting at Selby Park in Redcliffe to coincide with Schools Tree Day and the launch of the Our Trees initiative.

Participating schools included the Australian Islamic College, Kewdale Primary School, Carlisle Primary School, Belmay Primary School and St Maria Goretti’s Catholic Primary School.

Students watched a tree planting demonstration and then planted 15 Jacaranda trees in Selby Park.

The City is keen to have the community’s input to help us grow Belmont's urban forest!

While we will do the digging and planting trees, we want the community to assist in setting some goals and targets for us.

We need to know where more trees are needed and what the community wants in terms of tree programs, partnerships and actions.

You can have your say here on Belmont Connect – tell us about your favourite tree, order a new tree or ask us a question.
