Men of the Trees make their mark at Keryn Place ParkMen of the Trees (MOTT) have made great progress with two large regeneration plots at Keryn Place Park, Keperra. Working closely with Brisbane City Council assistance, this group has planted a great variety of trees and shrubs in place of the past weedy area.
Following a successful application for a BCC environmental grant, the first planting of approximately 550 trees, took place on National Tree Day, on Sunday morning, 27 July 2014.
Provision has been made for the planting of a total of 1200 trees and understorey plants, including ground covers and bordering Lomandra.
The location of the park is at the corner of Keryn Place and Mungarie Street, Keperra. See more details on this web site.
