CWA branch meets with urban tree group

The Umina Beach Country Women's Association branch recently met with a local greenspace initiative group to discuss the lack of urban greenery on the Peninsula.

"We were delighted to meet with the wonderful ladies of the Grow Urban Shade Trees group, who work with the Umina Community Group to plant more trees around the Peninsula," said branch publicity officer Ms Margaret Key.

"Just imagine what beautiful shade trees we will have in the coming years.

"To drive or walk down a tree lined with trees delivering shade is one of the simple pleasures of life.

"Also, the added benefit of achieving greater property values wherever a street or suburb is a leafy green and calm oasis," Ms Key said.

According to Ms Key, the branch felt so strongly in support of the group's work that members have decided to "greenify" the Umina Beach CWA Hall.

"In the autumn, we will be planting trees and shrubs on the surrounds of our hall on the corner on Ocean Beach Rd and Sydney St.

"Something to look for as you whiz through the roundabout.

"If you would like a tree planted on your nature strip, it makes no difference if you're a homeowner or renting,

"The group will guide you on the process and ask for a small donation to cover costs and an ongoing commitment to nurturing your tree through the early years of establishing," Ms Key said.
