MANY hands make light work, especially when that work is fun and a little bit dirty.

Residents young and old from around the southeastern suburbs were among those who volunteered to plant thousands of trees as part of National Tree Day celebrations.

Locally, Bunnings Warehouse Armadale employees visited Gwynne Park Primary School to help students plant a variety of natives in their gardens, while home schooled students and youngsters from Byford Child Care Centre joined Toyota Maddington and Canning Vale employees at the Serpentine River Bridge to plant trees.

The Cities of Armadale and Gosnells and Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale also ran tree planting events at Goolamrup Reserve in Kelmscott, Tom Bateman Reserve in Thornlie and Serpentine’s Arnold Road respectively.
