Somerset residents can collect free trees

SOMERSET residents are encouraged to use a free tree voucher that entitles them to collect two trees from council.

The vouchers, distributed by Somerset Regional Council through its quarterly newsletter, were posted to residents throughout September.

The first of three distribution days will be held at Fernvale Memorial Park on October 25 from 9am-midday.

Residents can redeem their free tree voucher for two free trees.

For more information on council's annual Free Tree Scheme phone 5424 4000.
