Since then the event has grown into the biggest community tree-planting and nature protection event in Australia.

National Tree Day is a call to action for Australians to unite and give back to the community and the land on which they live.

National Tree Day has seen nearly 26 million trees planted by around five million people since its inception.

During Week 1 of this term, the Stage 5 Agriculture class had the pleasure of planting a number of trees around the school.

Students and staff at Medowie Christian School worked together to prepare the soil, dig appropriate holes and plant Tuckeroo saplings donated by a local business.

“Each sapling students planted represents a seed of hope for a greener and more sustainable future,” a school representative stated.

Eli, a student of the agriculture class, told News Of The Area, ”Trees are important for sequestering carbon from the atmosphere and provide much needed habitat and food source for native fauna.”
