          Guthega Village Tree Planting Day 

                    16th March 2024 

The second annual Guthega village tree planting day will be hosted by the Guthega Ski Club and is supported by National Parks and Wildlife. The aim of the day is to plant 1000 snow gums in and around Guthega village, to help revegetate those areas affected by the dieback associated with the longicorn beetle.

The day will commence at 9.30am and all participants will be briefed on how and where to plant the snow gums, including: site preparation, hole digging, planting, staking, protecting and mulching. Participants are encouraged to wear long pants, sturdy shoes and a broad brimmed hat, and to bring along shovels, hand trowels and gloves.

A sausage sizzle lunch will be provided free for all volunteers, and at the end of the day we will gather for afternoon tea and enjoy a guest speaker from NPWS who will provide an update on the dieback and other items of interest to the Guthega and alpine community.

It’s a great activity to involve the kids in, and a wonderful opportunity to mingle and get to know other lodge members, while doing your bit for the Guthega snow gums.
