Almost 400 trees were planted in Forbes and Parkes at National Tree Day events organised by Central West Lachlan Landcare last weekend.
It was gorgeous weather for volunteers on Saturday who planted 120 trees in Forbes. They were rewarded with Bunnings BBQ vouchers for their hard work.
It was a very different story for volunteers on Sunday when the weather turned foul and freezing, but the brave volunteers still managed to plant 240 trees in Parkes. A BBQ brought some warm relief on the blustery day. Volunteers also received giveaway plants from Bunnings and Forbes Riverside Gardens.
Landcare Co-ordinator Marg Applebee thanked to Forbes and Parkes Shire Councils for their support with the events.
