Paul McCuskey and Jason Neil, from Ballarat building company Macneil Group have once again ‘come to the party’ to support tree planting in the local district. This year, they have generously paid for 120 trees for community groups to plant.

MacNeil’s trees have gone across 3 sites .. Skipton Primary School (45 trees), Tyenna River (45 trees) and the Pentland Hills (30).

On the 6th November, Skipton Primary School went down to Jubilee Park at Skipton to plant trees. Lilla Orton told us what to do, then Georgie gave us all a job. The jobs were planting the trees, watering the trees, digging holes or putting mulch around trees. Thank you Fifteen Trees and Macneil Group for giving us trees to plant.

Meanwhile over at the Tyenna River National Park (Tas) Matt Pitt was organising 1000 trees for supporters of Fifteen Trees. Forty-five of these trees were earmarked for the Macneil Group.

This project was about revegetating areas along the Tyenna River. Conservation Volunteers had various people engaged throughout this project including; local job seekers, retirees and university students as well as international volunteers. Everyone involved was thrilled to be helping revegetate and protect such a spectacular and diverse National Park.
