Celebrate National Tree Planting Day

Posted: 4pm 29 Jul 2021

If you’re keen to do your bit for the environment then North Harbour is the place to be on National Tree Planting Day, Sunday, August 1. It’s all part of Caboolture Festival, which kicks off the same day.

The Caboolture Festival runs from August 1-22 and includes a huge program of events with everything from opera in the park, open air comedy, a gem festival and Caboolture Family Fun Day.

On August 1, the North Harbour team aims to plant 1000 native trees to add to the more than 10,000 which have been planted since North Harbour took ownership of the site in 2006.

Project Director Bryan Finney said: “We have been working to rehabilitate and conserve our 9km of the Caboolture River bank which was previously eroded and subject to invasive native species of plants which degrade the soil and can be harmful to local wildlife.

“As part of our conservation programme, our aim is to rejuvenate this area, reintroduce native species of plants and trees and protect it as an area of natural beauty which is available for the community to enjoy in perpetuity.

“Events like our tree planting days allow us to show how we’re working towards creating sustainable development which enhances and sustains our local environments and eco-systems.

“They also give our residents the opportunity to plant a tree with their families that they can visit in the future. Literally putting down roots in our growing community.”

The family-friendly Tree Planting Day is free and visitors can plant trees, pat baby farm animals and see a part of North Harbour not yet open to the public.

There will also be entertainment from 101.5FM and free food and drink with a sausage sizzle run by North Harbour’s community partners Genies Netball Club and a coffee van.

Date: Sunday, August 1
