More than 300 trees go into the ground

Mitchell Shire’s natural landscape has been given a fresh boost with more than 300 new trees planted as part of Council’s annual tree planting program.

The types of trees planted vary with a number of indigenous and native species selected for their ability to adapt to changing environments and suitability for their location.

The trees have been planted across various locations in the shire.

Comments from the Mayor David Lowe

‘‘One of Mitchell Shire’s main attractions is our landscapes and rural aspects of community life, and trees are an import part of our region’s character," he said.

“Trees are an essential part of our growing modern and rural footprint and provide economic, social and environmental benefits to the community.

“We have planted new trees through every town in our municipality and will continue to work alongside external developers and contractors to ensure we maintain a healthy network of trees.

“We look forward to the current plantings to continue to enhance our towns.”
