Here's an Idea!

The Future of Kyogle…

I think that I shall never see, a poem lovely as a tree

Along with the rest of the planet Kyogle is getting hotter. 

Trees provide shade and lower temperatures. 

At a basic level, trees absorb carbon dioxide and provide oxygen. Very convenient for us and other living things. 

Trees attract and support wildlife, from our insect friends through to our amazing birdlife – and who doesn’t appreciate birdsong. 

Trees, and any contact with nature, are proven to bring physical and mental health benefits, uplifting our souls at the same time. 

Kyogle is sadly lacking street trees. A street tree program – with support from council and proper attention to site and species selection – would bring all of these benefits to Kyogle. 

Providing a focus on local species would help add some substance to the currently hollow slogan of GATEWAY TO THE RAINFORESTS.
