Fuji Xerox Completes Greening Tarpaulin Creek Projects

  • 30 September, 2004 15:37

<p>SYDNEY – 30 September, 2004 – Fuji Xerox Printers, the leading provider of quality print solutions, and Greening Australia have successfully completed the direct seeding of 5,500 native trees and shrubs along the headwaters of Tarpaulin Creek, a tributary of the Murrumbidgee River.</p>
<p>The creek, west of Canberra, runs directly below the Uriarra forestry settlement, which was severely impacted by the 18 January 2003 bushfires. After more than 150 years of clearing and unrestricted stock access – not to mention recent drought – the creek had been showing significant signs of ‘wear and tear’.</p>
<p>Fuji Xerox Printers Environment Manager, Peter Diprose said: “On both a local and a global basis, environmental responsibility is a core part of Fuji Xerox Printers business approach. We’re extremely pleased to be involved with the Tarpaulin Creek project and are continuing to work with myriad environmental groups, as well as supporting best practice initiatives within our own organisation to take a leadership role in our industry’s sustainability.”</p>
<p>Greening Australia’s prescribed seed mix – helping to heal erosion and encourage biodiversity on Tarpaulin Creek – comprises a diverse range of locally occurring native species, including Eucalypts, Acacias, understorey shrubs, forbs and grasses.</p>
<p>The direct seeding while important in its own right has the added benefit of connecting to other parts of Tarpaulin Creek recently planted by community volunteers (including staff from the Department of Environment and Heritage).</p>
<p>Greening Australia Chief Executive Officer, Carl Binning said: “We would especially like to thank Fuji Xerox for getting behind such environmental work (including the plantings near Mt. Stromlo), and for showing solidarity towards the Canberra community after the bushfires.</p>
<p>With the support of Fuji Xerox Printers, Greening Australia is helping to coordinate activity that will protect and enhance the riverine environment of Tarpaulin Creek, and assist the goodwill and determination of a committed land manager as he seeks to restore the creek to health.</p>
