Tumut, School Forest Forerunner

The Tumut & Adelong Times

4 February 1947

Passing to the practical aspect, Mr. de Beuzeville suggested that the citizens of Albury seek the assistance of the Education Department, in sowing a school forest.

He cited the example of Tumut where, 24 years ago, children had planted 23 acres of trees they had grown from seeds. Now a generation later, the first returns, amounting to between 500 and 700, were augmenting school funds.
