It may only boast a population of 66, but Mt Marrow's students proved they were more than capable with a shovel and 'barrow when they planted 100 new native trees at the school yesterday.
The National Tree Day schools event was supported by Llewellyn Motors Toyota and included some useful information for the students on developments in environmentally friendly hybrid technology.
The real fun was in planting an array of lomandras, sheoaks, wattles and eucalpyts across the grounds of Mt Marrow State School.
Principal Emma McBain said it was the first time National Tree Day had come off the beaten track between Ipswich and Rosewood to visit her school.
"We are very grateful for it," Mrs McBain said.
"The children are learning all about the environment and new technology, sustainability and they are getting to improve their school in the process.
"Often the smaller schools are overlooked for big events so this is a wonderful opportunity for the students.
Planet Ark and Toyota have been promoting National Tree Day for the past 18 years, planting about 24 million trees across the country in that time.
This year's target is to plant 1 million trees by the end of the official National Tree Day tomorrow.
Llewellyn Motors spokesman Matthew Taylor-Farrington said a concerted effort had gone into visiting a diverse range of Ipswich schools.
