Century City took Arbor Day commemorations to the neighbouring community this week planting seven indigenous trees at Sinenjongo High School in Marconi Beam.

Alan Liebenberg, environmental manager of the Century City Property Owners' Association, the Section 21 company responsible for running Century City, and his team assisted learners at the school plant the trees.

The two-year-old trees were grown at Century City's indigenous nursery on Intaka Island, its award-winning nature conservation wetlands.

Learners were informed of the importance of trees to the environment, particularly in terms of global climatic changes. Five Grade 10 learners have been appointed as tree monitors and taught how to look after the trees to ensure healthy growth.
