Schools Tree Planting
Koala Tree Planting for Schools, Universities & Educational Groups
Hands-on action and environmental learning for students, with organised, professional tree planters. No hole digging required.
“A tree planted this year by Year 7 students will be big enough to feed a koala when those students are in Year 11”
It only takes 4 years for a tree to grow large enough to feed a koala. A tree planted this year by a Year 7 will be big enough to feed a koala when those students are in Year 11.
