Message from our Chair, Lyndal Plant
Happy New Year and welcome to Treenet’s January News. Many will be receiving this our monthly newsletter for the first time with this edition because we’re extending our outreach to help the Australian community access information on trees and urban forestry.
Our commitment to helping Councils and communities meet the demand for greener, healthier and liveable neighbourhoods and climate resilient towns and cities has never been greater. We have improved access to independent, up-to-date information to guide action at the local level. Treenet’s free online resources include videos and papers of over 450 past symposium presentations on topics as broad as testing new tree species suited to planting in your city, the benefits trees provide, and the dollar value of these benefits.
If you’re a local government elected councillor, teacher, student, parent, or anyone with an interest in urban trees and how they help to improve living conditions in towns and cities you’ll find these resources interesting and helpful. When trees come up in conversation mention www.treenet.org as the go-to source of independent information on urban tree management. Better still, don’t wait for it to come up in conversation, send your contacts this link to Treenet News! Enjoy these resources and use this information to begin planning to plant more trees in 2023.
