Free Trees For Weeds

Once again, our generous donor Michael King has provided more funds to enable Landcare to extend its Trees for Weeds programme. We offer free local native plants to landowners who live in Hornsby Council’s rural area, or in Hills Shire along or near Old Northern Road.

We want the plants to go to people who have cleared privet or lantana or other weeds and who wish to revegetate with native plants. As well, those who want to revegetate their roadside nature strip, or create a wildlife corridor or a similar activity.

If that sounds like you, contact Nick on 9653 2056. We will help you work out what plants would suit your property from those available at several native Nurseries. Plants can include trees, shrubs or groundcovers. Trays and tubes are to be returned when you have finished with them.

You cannot buy local native plants from retail nurseries, so this is a special opportunity. We look forward to hearing from you.
