  2. 2. What is Chatswood Sunrise’s GroTrees Project? • It supports Rotary International’s Sustainability aims • It works with government and non-government partners • It benefits local communities and the environment • It encourages others to reduce their carbon footprint • It provides opportunities for people to hug a tree and feel good about it!
  3. 3. WHY GIVE A ROTREE? Several Rotary Clubs, ours included, give RoTrees to their guest speakers – here the District Governor at the time, John Cameron, is getting his “thank you” from President Eleanor Wu. A guest speaker gets his RoTree “thank you”

  5. 5. A right Royal tree!
  6. 6. We’ve had many reasons for Grotrees to be planted: • Thanks for a job well-done • To honour a person who has passed away • To thank a retiring employee (he and and his wife travelled from The Netherlands and visited the tree!) • (Best one yet) In honour of a removed gall bladder!
  7. 7. We change the world one tree at a time. This is a bush fire resistant eucalypt planted by Landcare, Australia in the Rotary Grove on its site at Teralba, near Lake Macquarie, north of Sydney

  16. 16. When Paul Harris visited Australia in 1935 he planted trees in various cities – Sydney has at least two: at North Sydney and at Parramatta. (That’s not your mother over on the right, is it?)
  17. 17. There are twenty thousand here at the Convention. We can make a difference. “Trees play an important role in addressing climate change and assisting our agricultural areas to be more sustainable. They do this by helping to reduce atmospheric CO2 levels. They can also assist in preventing salinity and soil erosion, provide shade, shelter, food and habitat to native animals.” http://www.carbonneutral.com.au/climate-change/role-of-trees.html Further details at www.rotarychatswoodsunrise.org
  18. 18. Branching out …. Please consider starting up GroTrees in your Club and your District when you return home. Let us know how you get along with this project. Perhaps GroTrees will become an international success story? You can help – go to www.rotarychatswoodsunrise.org (Take a card to remind you – it’s got the QR code for direct access!))
