Conservation group donates trees to Peninsula
The Australian Conservation Foundation Central Coast Branch has donated $250 for advanced trees to the Grow Urban Shade Trees group, based on the Peninsula.
Branch president Mr Mark Ellis said branch members were inspired by the significant achievements of the group on the Peninsula in the past couple of years, and wanted to support their work.
He said that the leafy water gums and native frangipani would help to increase tree canopy and reduce the heat bowl effect across the Peninsula.
"As summer temperatures rise, we can all benefit by having more shade around our streets and houses, not only reducing glare and noise but helping to keep the air clean," he said.
"Everyone can help by planting a substantial native in the right space," Mark said.
The trees will be planted on nature strips in residential streets.
