Messages from locals expressing why they love our trees have been displayed alongside new plantings at Bedlam Bay as part of National Tree Day (Sunday August 2, 2020).

The Hunters Hill Bushcare program called on the community to help with a planting program at Bedlam Bay through an ‘ opens in a new windowadopt a plant’ initiative.

It involved sending a personal message to be displayed alongside grasses, trees and shrubs at the site.

Messages from members of the public and Bushcare volunteers included:

“When I sees trees, I feel thankful.”

“From gums to grasses, I love my local bush.”

“Did you know that below our feet, our trees talk to each other along a filigree-thin network of fungal threads?”

“I love our local trees because they are a legacy that may outlast us and provide continuity of beauty and health for neighbours to come.”

“Trees remind us to breathe.”

“Our trees give us clean air, shade, delight our senses and shelter for birds.”

The messages were placed on site today.

The new plants will play a key role in creating habitat for local birds and other wildlife, and contribute to a healthy and vibrant ecosystem, while creating a beautiful place for the community to enjoy.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there were no official National Tree Day planting events in 2020.
