REMEMBER THOSE TREES?
If you were at last’s year’s conference you were part of something special. Whether you knew about it or not, the organisers of the PLA National Conference in Townsville (2007) made a decision to offset the carbon generated by the delegates – the travel, air-con- ditioning, lighting, catering – and they did it by planting trees.
Since then, twelve months have whipped past and we’ve gathered again in Melbourne. And if you could see those tiny tube stock trees now, you’d think it had been two years or more. Ron Degenhart* tells the tale and explains the secret behind the success of this planting.
