Three thousand native trees were given away to the community by George Hartnett Funerals, Allambe Memorial Park and Mt Thompson Memorial Gardens recently as part of National Tree Day.
The trees were given to the community to celebrate this nationally recognised event. There were eight sites chosen from around greater Brisbane as distribution points, with each site offering native plants specifically chosen to suit the requirements of the local area and its wildlife.
George Hartnett Funerals staff encouraged members of the community to plant the native trees in their backyards and near local creeks and wildlife reserves, particularly those areas damaged by flooding earlier in the year.
Participating in the environmentally-focussed event also gave staff an opportunity to promote the environmental advantages of the new LifeArt coffin range, which re-enforced George Hartnett’s on-going commitment to a greener future.
