Education needed on benefits of native tree planting
I would like to add to Jennifer Wilder's excellent comments on the environmental, wildlife, shade, heat reduction and visual benefits of planting native vegetation on public and private lands (Peninsula News, 22 August).
Australia needs a national campaign to educate the Australian public and governments at all levels on the benefits of native tree plantings on public and private land.
Trees are integral to the sustainability of and connection of people to the environment.
If more Australians can see the essential benefits of trees, it would help improve public policy at all government levels to maximise the retention of native vegetation on public and private land.
