The scars on the local landscape from summer's bushfire crisis are still visible.
The healing process is taking place and recently a group of workers got stuck into the second part of their 'after the fires' bush regeneration project.
A large workforce from Milton Rural Landcare, Office of Environment and Heritage, Treading Lightly Incorporated, local bushcare volunteers, Local Land Council, Ulladulla High representatives, NPA and people who just wanted to get their hands dirty over the two days targeted Robert Miller's property in Milton.
Their mammoth goal was to plant 500 rainforest trees which they did in fine style.
"A massive expression of gratitude goes to all the volunteers that just got in and got the job done," a spokesperson said.
"Such a mammoth effort with most of the planting done on day one of our two-day plantings.
"So many incredible humans to mention but I know you know who you are and I know you will be feeling so proud."
Special acknowledgement went to Ulladulla High School student Brodie Whalan.
"The most gratitude goes to Brodie Whalan (@brodiewmedia). An Ulladulla High School student who was one of many that came out to help on the day," the spokesperson said.
"This legend is officially part of the Treading Lightly Incorporated family and we are so proud and grateful for him.
"He has captured this moment beautifully."
Many people were in tears after watching Brodie's video.
The tree planting event was summed up "as a thing of pure joy and hope amongst all the craziness" related to the current health situation.
There is another planting set for April but may be delayed.
The first tree planting day was with Uncle Noel Butler and Trish Butler from Nura Gunyu.
