Committee member Dorit Swan and her crew were out planting trees this week. Why you might ask?

Planting trees improves fish habitat and assists with better water management. Carefully sited, native trees and woods can help to maintain and improve water quality and reduce the risk and severity of flooding. With regards to river restoration, riparian trees and woods can provide dappled or broken shade that help reduce water temperatures, benefitting fisheries and other wildlife. Trees can also help stabilise river banks, reducing erosion during flood events. Tree planting is a priority to good river restoration.
