IF YOU are barking mad about trees then here's the gig for you.

Four tree planting sessions will be held along Police Creek in Gladstone as part of a five-year vegetation restoration project.

Volunteers are needed to help out on May 4 and May 10 along Golf Course Road and on May 18 and 25 along the Southern Cross Close section of the creek.

The project is being undertaken by the Fitzroy Basin Association, Boyne Calliope Sub Region, Gladstone Regional Council and the Friends of Police Creek.

Volunteers should wear closed-in shoes, sunscreen and sun-safe clothing and gloves and bring a water bottle.

Police Creek flows through Gladstone to Lake Callemondah and connects to the Great Barrier Reef.

The plantings will help improve the habitats of wildlife including barramundi, frogs and the Boobook owl.
