Around 2,000 trees and native grasses were planted in the Duck Pond at South Lismore on Sunday as part of National Tree Day.
The event kicked off around 10am with a Welcome to Country from Bundjalung Elder Michael Ryan, followed by a planting briefing from Shayne Banks of Booyong Nursery, who this year won a contract to help regenerate along the bank of Leycester Creek.
Organisers said about 150 people took part in the planting, with the trees and grasses watered and mulched within a couple of hours of starting work.
Mr Banks praised the effort of the volunteers, saying he had only expected to get about half the trees and grasses planted on the day.
The Lismore Lions Club provided a free sausage sizzle for the volunteers, and in the afternoon local musicians kept the remaining crowd entertained.
