Carnival City gets planting for Arbor Month

SPRING: Front: Anna Pholose (Carnival City’s environmental officer). Back: Ellen Mthembu (Carnival City’s security administrator), Motshedisi Malebo (marketing intern), Phineas Serumula (landscaping contract manager), Angeline van Demon (guest), Antonella Turner (guest) and Tuys Tivani (Servest supervisor).

CARNIVAL City representatives rolled up their sleeves and got digging to mark the start of spring and Arbor Month.

The team planted ten Buffalo Thorn trees around the complex and a further 90 trees were handed to guests visiting the complex on Spring Day. Arbor Month serves to generate awareness of the devastating effects of deforestation and urbanisation on the environment, with the aim to encourage South Africans to do their bit to help replenish what has been lost by planting more indigenous trees. Arbor Day is a celebration of the beauty and importance of trees and South African’s celebrated this month-long awareness campaign that has the creation of a greener future.

PLANTING: Anna Pholose (Carnival City’s environmental officer), Tienie van Wyk (Carnival City’s maintenance manager) and Annemie Turk (Carnival City’s general manager).

“One person planting one tree will make little difference but if we all plant trees in Arbor Month, the cumulative effect is meaningful. Tree planting has been a tradition at Carnival City for many years. We are delighted with our new trees and hope that we have encouraged our employees and guests to get planting too,” said Annemie Turk, general manager at Carnival City.
