Ross Morley, Managing Director of G. J. Gardner Homes has been supporting our native environment (through Fifteen Trees) since 2013 and has now helped plant over 44,000 trees across Victoria and Tasmania. For every new home built, Fifteen Trees organises the planting of 15 trees in the local district. This year alone the project will see over 11, 310 trees planted by schools, landcare and various environmental groups.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) makes perfect sense to G.J.Gardner Homes and it is great to see this companies embracing the triple bottom line .. people, planet and profit.
Chris and Tanya Dell from G. J. Gardner Homes Launceston are generous supporters of local community groups and their tree planting projects. This year, the Launceston team purchased 435 trees for several reserves in the district.
NRM North helped facilitate the planting of 435 native species around Launceston last month as part of the Fifteen Trees project.
In Launceston, the Fifteen Trees project is supported by GJ Gardner Homes who put aside fifteen trees for a community planting project every time they build a house.
Students from Trevallyn Primary School teamed up with Parks and Wildlife, planting some of the trees at the Trevallyn Reserve. Windsor Precinct also benefitted thanks to Riverside Olympic Soccer Club members and the West Tamar Council, while the Friends of Punchbowl along with representatives from the City of Launceston planted natives at the Punchbowl Reserve. The trees were sourced from Habitat Nursery.
Many thanks to GJ Gardner Homes, the 50 volunteers who got their hands dirty and Fifteen Trees for making this possible.

Big shout out to Ross Morely, Chris Dell and Tanya Dell for their continued support of our local planting communities. Thank you also to our Planting Project Manager Kirstyn Hall, and Alison Hugo at NRM.
Fifteen Trees can also help make your CSR policies meaningful and tangible. When you buy trees for community groups, you have stories and photos to share with your staff, share-holders and customers. CSR it makes perfect business sense. Customers are pretty savvy these days and are more interested than ever in seeing where their money is going. They are voting with their wallets and choosing companies that can show meaningful CSR. If you too would like to support our tree planting projects, please contact us.
