Fifteen Trees is delighted to report that G. J. Gardner Homes (Victoria and Tasmania) will continue to support tree planting in Victoria and Tasmania – to the tune of 5355 trees in 2014. A partnering between G.J. Gardner Homes and Fifteen Trees has produced the 15 trees project for the home building company. In brief, for every new home built by GJG, 15 trees are planted in the local district by a community group (such as landcare, school group or environmental network).
All 5355 trees will be distributed to community groups in rural and regional towns such as Swan Hill, Mildura and Wodonga in the north, across to Bendigo, Macedon, Ararat and Ballarat in central Victoria to Geelong and Warnambool in the west, Bairnsdale and Philip Island in the east and across the Tasman Sea to Launceston. This is the second year that G.J. Gardner participated in the program and at least 40 community groups are extremely grateful.
