Out of the ashes – Plant your Paper Back heads into fire affected areas

The NAB 2011 Plant your Paper Back program has officially launched, with many employees signing up to plant trees, shrubs and grasses all over Australia.

Recently, NAB employees have been rolling up their sleeves in the Black Saturday fire affected area of Flowerdale and joining Chris Cobern from the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network to spend a day planting trees on land set aside for conservation.

The tree planting at Flowerdale is part of the “Lorax Project” which is a revegetation/tree planting project focusing on fire affected landowners in the Murrindindi and Mitchell Shires. The property they worked on is a 450 acre cattle farm owned by Diego and Georgia Puyol. With the assistance from Landcare of volunteers like NAB employees, Deigo and Georgia Puyol hope to plant up to 2,000 plants in areas of their property that they have fenced off and set aside for conservation.

Funded by the federal governments ‘Caring For Our Country program’, Landcare’s fire recovery project has been a great success with 30,000 plants planted in 2010 – 16,600 of them planted by corporate volunteers, like the teams you see pictured.
