Tony’s 70th Tree Planting Celebration

two men planting a small tree in a grassed setting.

On Thursday 23rd February I celebrate my 70th anniversary of birth and invite you to join me in a 70th legacy!!

In the pic for this post I am seen planting a tree on my friends Damien and Linda’s property. This was a few years ago and on the eve of my birthday I will be meeting with Damien to plan a planting for this milestone birthday.

Can I invite you to join me when convenient in this celebration by planting a tree or native bush/shrub that will live beyond our planting for the next generation.

My hope is to create a “70th Birthday Album” of your planting and invite you to send a photo with you tree or shrub/bush. You can add your pic to the Discussion forum of this event or email me on

This event will continue through this year so that you can find the best time for planting.

I  acknowledge the land of the Wadawurrung people of the Kulin nations where I was born and pay respect to Elders, past and  present

On this day I give thanks for my parents now deceased, my sister and brothers, cousins and relatives of several generations who nurtured, loved and challenged me.

I give thanks for the neighbours, school friends, work colleagues, travel companions, lecturers, employers, lovers and life friends who have shared the journey over 70 years

.I wish a “Happy Birthday” to each of you for your celebration of the birthing day in your life. May the year ahead be a time of growth, compassion, commitment and love in so many ways for each of us.

To celebrate this milstone I am inviting friends to plant a tree or native plant during this year and send me a pic for a celebration album.

Another project I am working on in these latter years is updating  my digital biography. Yes, here in images are the highlights captured by other peoples lens. If you have an image you would like to contribute feel free to send it in for inclusion. Please feel free to add comments and your memories of these moments.
