As Mother's Day approached, I felt apprehensive as it was to be the first without my loving and caring mother. My mother passed away suddenly…Nothing prepares you for the loss and devastation. It was heart-warming to find an article regarding Trees for Mum. I registered online and my husband and I attended. We planted a strong and healthy gum tree that will hopefully grow into a beautiful tree to be enjoyed by our community. We now have a charming place to visit and reflect. Future Mother's Days will be approached as an opportunity to contribute to the community while remembering my wonderful mum.

What kind of trees will we plant?
The species of trees will vary at planting sites and in some locations will include plant varieties. All trees and plants are Australian natives and planting supports the bushcare initiatives in the local area.

If you are planting a tree in your own garden, we recommend seeking the advice of your local garden centre to ensure the species is most suited to your needs and environmental conditions.

Can I water and maintain my tree?
The local councils or environmental groups will manage the ongoing maintenance of the trees and plants at public planting sites. However all sites are located within public parks and gardens and you are welcome to visit.

And of course we encourage you to water and nurture any trees you plant in your own garden!
