Camden’s tree canopy is set to increase in years to come after residents helped plant 1,000 trees as part of National Tree Day last weekend.

Residents gathered to install the native Cumberland Plain Woodland plants at John Oxley Reserve, Kirkham, including setting them up with tree guards to protect them as they grow.

Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli thanked the community for getting behind National Tree Day.

“The Camden community has always worked together for great causes over the years and National Tree Day is no exception as can be seen by the results,” Cr Fedeli said.

“It is important that Council works together with the community and its partners like Planet Ark and Greening Australia to help enhance the environment and take care of the beautiful area we live in.

“Along with the entire country, we have helped make a positive environmental impact and I am very proud of Council and the community members who took part in this event.”

National Tree Day is an initiative organised by Planet Ark, and this year’s event was delivered through a partnership with Greening Australia.
