9 year old Caitlyn Young, has taken the plight of our trees very seriously, and has made it her mission to save seeds of trees that we may lose due to the PSHB infestation. As a start, she has grown from seed Acacia trees, an indigenous, hardy tree that provides lovely shade. It is our duty to spread the message of the plight of our trees, but to not let it just stop there. Funds need to be raised to either treat trees already affected or replace to maintain an urban forest canopy. For every seedling starter pack sold, a portion of the money will go towards the PNRA's Project Evergreen, to assist in their effort to save the tree canopy of Parktown North.
