Ross Morley, Managing Director of G. J. Gardner Homes has been supporting our native environment (through Fifteen Trees) since 2013 and has helped plant 30,000 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 8,500 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, this duo have purchased 225 trees for Alison Hugo and her regional Landcare group. Trees went to 2 sites – Exeter High School and West Tamar Landcare.
Alison writes …
Over 100 Exeter High School and Exeter Primary School students planted out an area alongside a recently fenced off waterway, on the school farm. These native plants will assist in the establishment of a biodiversity corridor that will help not only improve the quality of the water but also increase habitat values.
West Tamar Landcare members spent a wintery Saturday afternoon planting out natives as part of a rehabilitation project near Stony Creek. The group have been working in the area for over 12 months removing environmental weeds, building paths and assisting with rehabilitation the area. The group were also joined by G.J. Gardner staff.
Thank you Chris and Tanya for your continued support of our planting projects.
