54 trees and shrubs were planted during this years "Trees For Families" event, a joint project between Rotary Dunedin and the "Keep Dunedin Beautiful Committee". Members of the public wishing to mark a special memory were able to purchase a tree or shrub through KDB (they also received a certificate marking the event), planting holes were pre-dug by the Rotary club, and on Fathers Day (Sept 3rd) it was fun to see kids, families, and friends getting their hands dirty despite the grey weathered day.
Planted were: Cabbage Tree (6), Ngaio (4), Kowhai (6), Mahoe (6), Mapou (4), Lancewood (6), Totara (4) & Mingimingi (18). For the first time, plantings were done at Rotary Park (Sheil Hill) as the West Harbour site used for the past ten years has reached capacity.
