More Trees Please

Darcy Green - Tuesday, February 14, 2012

The Nursery & Garden Industry’s ‘Improve Your Plant Life Balance’ campaign moves into a different phase in 2012 with the launching of the ‘More Trees Please’ campaign. Outdoor Design Source quote a Newspoll research poll commissioned for the NGIA & Smart Approved WaterMark in November 2011 which shows that 89% of Australians want more green space in their cities and recognition of the value of trees and plants in people’s gardens.

The Newspoll results showed that:

• 73% saw their garden as a sanctuary for their mental wellbeing

• 83% saw it as a place for relaxation and taking time out

• 60% saw it as making their contribution to the environment

 “While an important aspect of the campaign will be to show the real value of trees in urban communities, the campaign also allows retailers and wholesalers the chance to come on board for the whole year and adopt the theme of More Trees Please,” said the NGIA President, Mr Craig Norman.  “We also hope that landscapers, designers and other green industry groups join us in promoting the message,” said Mr Norman.

“Friday March 2 is national ‘Improve Your Plant/Life Balance Day’ and we will kick off this year’s campaign by highlighting research which supports our theme of More Trees Please,” says CEO of NGIA Robert Prince.

Highlights of the research will be announced at a special ceremony in Canberra at the National Arboretum where a silky oak (Grevillea robusta) will be planted before an invited audience of industry and stakeholder representatives.

 The Shadow Minister of Climate Change, Environment and Heritage, The Hon Greg Hunt MP, as well as Mr John Hargeaves, MLA, ACT Government will assist in the planting of the tree and lend their support to the industry’s call for More Trees Please.
