Ross Morley, Managing Director of G. J. Gardner Homes has been supporting our native environment (through Fifteen Trees) since 2013 and has helped plant 1000’s of trees across Victoria and Tasmania. For every new home built, Fifteen Trees organises the planting of 15 trees in the local district. This year, the project will see over 7,000 trees planted by schools, landcare and various environmental groups.
Chris and Tanya Dell from G. J. Gardner Homes Launceston are generous supporters of local community groups and their tree planting projects. This year, Chris and Tanya purchased 375 trees for Alison Hugo and her regional landcare groups. Two hundred and twenty five (225) were planted at Mill Dam and one hundred and fifty (150) trees went to the Westbury Town Common Landcare Group. The team from GJG also took time from the office to plant many of the trees.
Wednesday July 1st, found the Tasmanian TAFE Horticulture Certificate II & III classes spending the afternoon at the Mill Dam walking track at Longford to apply support to riparian and floodplain revegetation project. They planted over 220 trees and guarded them with milk cartons to reduce rabbit browsing. The trees were generously provided via G.J Gardner in partnership with Fifteen Trees. Staff from G.J Gardener Launceston were also involved with the planting.
The classes’ efforts were celebrated with morning tea and lunch magnificently provided by G.J Gardner Homes and NRM North.
