Coinciding with World Environment Day the annual Lennox Head Community Tree Planting Day had around 150 people come along to plant trees on the Lennox headland.

‘This popular community event continues its goal of reinstating the Lennox headland back to the way it was in the 1880’s and, through the planting of littoral rainforest species, creating a lasting natural legacy for generations to come. A large area has been planted since the event’s inception in 2003, but there is still a lot more work to be done,’ said Elise Ross from GeoLINK who organise the event with Ballina Shire Council.

Now in its 16th year around 90 children from from Lennox Head Public Schooland Xavier Catholic College joined in the planting of around 1,000 trees.

‘The kids were entertained with tree planting and presentations from Jali (Local Aboriginal Land Council) representative and Dr Robert Kooyman from Rainforest Rescue with a side show of a passing procession of whales,’ finished Elise.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. And who is going to water these 1000 trees? We are now going into winter and the trees need to be kept up with water as there is little rain now. There is a lot going on in Lennox Head but getting the news out to the wider audience is a problem.
