Tree Planting Committee
Convenor: Ian Prisk
We plant around 2,500 plants on Mt Victoria each year and we need your help to ramp that up to 10,000 per year. We enjoy tremendous support from the Mt Vic community, who see this as their backyard and are more than willing to pitch in. With a BHAG of planting 100,000 trees by 2021, we need more plants than the Council and Forest and Bird can supply, so we have started growing and collecting our own native plants. In the process, we have discovered quite a community of people and organisations that are growing and planting their own natives. One example is the Paparangi nursery which is supplying seeds and seedlings for the Trees For Survival project, a great initiative which we also promote through Rotary.
