Free trees for carbon offset

Blue Mts council are currently giving away 2 tree seedlings per household to encourage local planting as a 'carbon offset' initiative. Organisations can get up to 20 - which our native gardening course have already claimed and planted, but I did want to get our 2 for us- so we collected them this week.

There was a huge range of natives to choose from in either tube-stock or small pots. We chose Eucalyptus Sieberi and Eucalyptus Oreades, both beautiful but will become huge trees, so we will plant them up on our land at Blackheath where they will have plenty of room. Both trees are found naturally in that area too.

Anyone local interested in getting your trees- more info here
