Free tree day a success

2,500 trees were given away to residents in Kingston last Friday for the Free Tree Program.

The Kingston District Council held it's Free Tree Program again this year to encourage people to grow native plants in their gardens. 

Green thumb, Max Sly, volunteers his time and effort to grow the seedlings, without him the Free Tree Program couldn’t happen. 

Max's love for gardening has meant that the Free Tree Program has been running for 22 years, with over 84,000 trees given to the community.
