Celebrating Arbour Week

National Arbor Week is a time when South Africans of all ages are encouraged to celebrate the beauty and importance of trees, and with this in mind, a team from Hirsch’s Ballito visited Curro’s Mount Richmore school on the North Coast  to join them for a morning of tree planting.

The pupils from the school were dressed for the part and got involved in helping plant two new trees and learnt the importance of conserving our environment and the many benefits planting trees has on it.

Hirsch’s Shane Spencer said “Curro Mount Richmore planted the tree of the year for 2017, their very first acacia thorn tree and they also planted an Albizia flat crown tree to provide much needed shade for the pupils.

Not only do trees give us shade they also give us oxygen and provide shelter, homes and food for various birds and animals – we were thrilled have been a part of these Arbor week festivities at the school.”
