Tuesday 5th June saw NCIG once again participate in the Corporate Tree Planting Challenge, hosted by Conservations Volunteers Australia for World Environment Day. Seven teams from different businesses across Kooragang Island braved the rain and faced-off in a competition to plant as many trees as possible in just two hours. 

Collectively, the seven teams planted a total of 3188 trees on the day. While NCIG did not win first place, we managed to plant our full allocation, which was the most trees by a team (600) and took out 3rd place in the competition, planting 60 trees per person.  These trees were planted in Hunter Wetlands National Park on Kooragang Island, directly next to the 2300 trees planted in last years competition, which are thriving. 

A big thank you to Conservation Volunteers Australia for spending a considerable amount of time removing the weeds and preparing the site for the event. The day was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
