Volunteer dig


Paul Carter does his bit during a World Environment Day tree-planting event on Coronet Peak’s Skippers Canyon Road last week.

Carter was among seven volunteers from technical and service consultancy GHD who took Wednesday afternoon off to plant 390 trees at an area prone to slips.

The firm was earlier involved in rebuilding an historic wall which collapsed during a storm last year. GHD roading engineer Giulio Chapman-Olla says it’s great to be able to give something back to the community in a fantastic environment.
