Thanks to 1338 Greening Australia Capital Region volunteers, the hills around Canberra are now much greener.

Since 2005, Greening Australia have organised almost 250 events planting almost 64,000 trees and propagating over 218,000 plants.

Projects have included private land holdings as well as public land and over 80 private landholders have participated in at least one program.

The survival rate of the plantings has been in excess of 75% which is an amazing result considering the lack of rain the region experienced from 2005 to late 2007.
