Western Australia 2010

Approximately 73,000 additional native trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants now dot the Western Australia landscape after multiple planting events in 2010 that involved Alcoa employees, community members, school students, Greening Australia, and the Harvey River Restoration Taskforce.

Highlights from the year include school groups planting 16,500 seedlings in two days through the Men of the Trees volunteer project. Another 400 students and 35 volunteers planted 25,000 trees at Nell’s Block, a 16-hectare (40-acre) area of Alcoa-owned land northwest of Yarloop that is being re-vegetated with the goal of achieving reserve status and being returned to the local community. The Alcoa Landcare Education Centre hosted two planting days that involved 110 corporate and community volunteers who planted 10,000 seedlings.

The remaining 21,500 seedlings were planted in planned land conservation projects on Alcoa’s rural landholdings around its Wagerup and Pinjarra refineries, including 40 hectares (100 acres) in Yarloop that are to become a dedicated community environmental area.
