Plant Local

The whole Berry area was previously covered by dense rainforest. From various reports and surveys, Berry Landcare has compiled a list of the trees that are found locally, especially in the rainforest remnant at the David Berry Hospital and in the 36 hectare public reserve on Moeyan Hill. Both are working sites for the Berry Landcare/Bushcare group.

We encourage people planting trees locally to choose locally indigenous varieties, and have distributed many copies of this list at Berry Landcare Events and our stalls at the local show and field days. For such events we have posters encouraging people to “Plant Local”
