WISALTS column

(1985) WISALTS column. Elders Weekly, 28 March 1985. p. 7 [Publication] [Special Collections]


WISALTS column discusses urban forests, trees in the towns and cities in Australia. There are a number of voluntary groups working on this concept throughout the country with the aim of enlarging the number of trees city dwellers can enjoy. A non-voluntary group called the Urban Forest Committee began in Melbourne and was funded by the State Government. The long term aspect of a tree planting project has not been recognised with funding not continuing for the 1985/86 year. The concept of urban forests is a sound one, trees are a valuable part of the environment. One of the voluntary groups involved in encouraging tree planting is Greening Australia with some funded personnel in Western Australia, including two tree-persons, one rural, one urban.
