Message from our Chair, Lyndal Plant
Happy New Year and best wishes for 2024 from all at Treenet. To help create a greener, healthier and climate-resilient future we’re increasing investment in projects and outreach this year. Greater engagement with community, researchers and professionals will advance design and engineering for trees, Avenues of Honour research and tree species trials.
What makes a good street tree? How many of the 73,000 tree species globally are suitable for planting in streets? By championing and supporting tree species trials Treenet is helping to answer these questions, to increase the range of trees nurseries grow, and to improve the diversity and resilience of Australia’s urban forests. Some recent plantings, thoughts on future trials, and information on our upcoming SEQ Tree Species Forum are included in this edition of Treenet News. Enjoy January News and please forward it to your colleagues and networks.
