Morton Bay Fig/Ficus Macrophylla, Queensland, Australia.
On the 5th of June we celebrated Arbor day and we here at Pro Climb felt that we should turn a single day of celebration into a month long project. Arbor day is about inspiring people to plant,nurture and celebrate trees. The Arbor day tradition started in Nabraska in the United States of America and is today celebrated across the globe. Trees play an important role in moderating our climate, improving our air quality, controlling floodwaters and providing homes and food for our unique wildlife. Even if you missed the big day itself it is not to late to plant a native tree in your backyard or simply enjoy the pristine beauty of New Zealand’s wonderful collection of native trees in your local area. Alternatively you could join or start a conservation project in your area. For more details about conservation projects in your area go to the Department of Conservation website.
