52 trees..... Challenge!

52 trees planted in 2013 is the goal my little family has planned for our beautiful earth.......

Trees are our best allies.......I'm not about to go into a goody goody rant about saving the forests and then go chain myself to a tree but lets face it, trees are what we need to  help reduce climate change, they beautify your surroundings, purify our air, really the list of benefits just goes on and considering it's our children who will eventually inherit the earth next it's time to do our bit and how cool would it be if all of us decided to plant just 52 trees this year. That's A LOT of trees.

This is our start - these hoop pines are native to our area, our property has quite a few but when the area was first settled quite a lot were cut out too. We potted these yesterday.....not all will survive of course but when they get to about 60cm tall they will be planted out in a paddock that sits alongside our long winding driveway.

I wasn't going to do a post on this but then I thought that others might like to embrace the challenge too!
So whether you plant one tree a week or become involved in a community project where you plant out 20 in one go why not come on the journey with me............I know the planet will thank you ;)

And if you want to share the love on your blog or facebook page feel free to use my image I created above....don't forget to comment here if you take the pledge as I love to hear from you!
