Highlights from the Annual Report for 1998 - 1999

Membership levels continued to fluctuate around 500 during the year; at the year end, membership was 521.

The cost of running TREAT for the year was $5,300; income from various sources largely subscriptions and the sale of t-shirts, totalled $6,500. Four project grants were received from Government amounting to $45,175 - more than double that received the previous year.

Activities were held monthly throughout the year; working sessions continued each Friday at the QPWS Centre for Tropical Restoration (formerly the Regional Nursery).

Members put in a total of 6,700 hours of voluntary work in a range of activities, from nursery work to planting, administration and monitoring.

More than 39,000 plants of 164 species were produced during the year - slightly more than last year; at an average plant population of 2,500 plants per ha, this resulted in 16 ha of rainforest being planted in project areas, State Parks and on members own properties.

Work continued on Peterson Creek Revegetation Project and started on the Mazlin Rehabilitation Project; members also continued with the monthly survey of vegetation and quarterly monitoring of mammals at Pelican Point.

The 'Tree Awareness Programme' in schools, an environmental education programme, continued with support from members and school teachers and a $3000 grant from the Environmental Protection Agency.

The Newsletter, with circulation remaining at 600 continued to be published quarterly; copies were mailed to members, schools and other agencies involved in similar work.

The Management Committee met monthly throughout the year, maintained liaison with other organisations, monitored finance, project progress and membership and produced media releases.
