Hagley tree day

August 2018

ON THE 27th July, Liberal Member for Lyons, Guy Barnett joined students from Hagley Farm School to plant some native Tasmanian trees as part of Planet Ark’s annual National Schools’ Tree Day.

The National Tree Day event encourages the revegetation of the Australian landscape with native plants, and offers all Australians and in particular our children, to learn and re-connect with their local environment.

Sustainable Timber Tasmania (STT), provided Hagley Farm School with 300 Bottlebrush seedlings for the planting.

Over the past 13 years STT (formerly Forestry Tasmania) has donated more than 92,000 seedlings to Tasmanian schools and community organisations to celebrate national tree day.
