Deforestation and Reforestation

As Monday June 5th is Arbor Day, I decided to choose a selection of videos on this subject. As I type, I look across Lyttelton Harbour at hills that have trees only in a few lower areas; large areas that used to be covered in sheep when I was a child, and in trees before humans arrived! are now bare and unused. If this area could be replanted with trees, especially natives, what a difference it would make to soil erosion, retention of CO2 and thus reducing climate problems, and providing beauty to look at, and places to walk to improve our emotional and physical health! Fortunately such efforts are already being made in the harbour, but imagine if more of us took action to grow more trees. Come and get some inspiration on Friday 2nd.
7.15 pm at The Portal, 54A Oxford Street, up the drive between the playground and the swimming pool. Koha appreciated, or Timebank credit to LIFT.
