Peter King from King’s Cars Ballarat has been a generous supporter of Fifteen Trees for 7 years. During that time he has helped community groups in the Ballarat district plant over 6,500 trees. Fifteen Trees plants 15 trees for every Mitsubishis ASX sold at the dealership. Corporate social responsibility at its best. Last month, 270 of Peter’s trees were planted at the Bellarine Peninsula by Matt Crawley and his landcare team.
On National Tree Day, for the ninth consecutive year, the Bellarine Peninsula community gathered to plant trees (shrubs and grasses) across 2 sites: The Narrows and the Coastal Moonah Woodland. This project aims to revegetate a section of woodland using indigenous species from the local area and grown by the Queenscliff Community Indigenous Nursery.
This location contains many habitat values for local fauna and is listed as threatened under the Victorian Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act. These plantings will go a long way towards increasing biodiversity for the local fauna.
The Bellarine Catchment Network, Queenscliff Community Nursery and the Swan Bay Environment Association supported this event along with Peter King (Kings Cars) and Colleen Filippa (Fifteen Trees).
