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.


Josh Tyrrell from G. J. Gardner Homes Warragul is a generous supporter of local community groups and their tree planting projects. This year, Josh has purchased 75 trees for Karla Rutherford and her regional landcare group. These trees went to Brooker Park in the Baw Baw Shire and were planted on National Tree Day.

Please find attached some photos of Baw Baw shire’s National Tree Day event at Brooker Park, Warragul on Sunday 30th July. Funds from G.J. Gardner Homes Warragul were used to continue restoration works along Hazel Creek. In total 1030 plants were installed by community volunteers, of which 75 trees were supplied by GJG. A combination of trees, shrubs and grasses were installed to replicate the vegetation type that previously occurred at the site. A total of 53 volunteers participated on the day, making a significant contribution to improving the local environment.
