Skretting Australia is an international company producing feed for the aquaculture industry. They pride themselves on their commitment to sustainability. This year, they have once again generously committed to helping out our tree planting efforts in Tasmania, to the tune of 853 trees!

Skretting’s trees were planted at Tramway Hill, Tasmania on Threatened Species Day (September 7th).

Despite the weather forecast a fantastic group of volunteers turned up to plant 1000 trees and help map the threatened plant; epacris virgata. Thank you to Skretting for purchasing 853 trees towards this project. Thank also to the Tramway Hill Landcare Group, Kingborough Council and Conservation Volunteers Australia for their amazing support on the day.

Huge thank you Skretting Aus for your continued support of community tree planting projects in Tasmania. Thanks in particular to James McIver (Communications and Sustainability Officer) for continuing the relationship between Fifteen Trees and Skretting.

Corporate social responsibility can take many forms but for us … tree planting hits a number of targets! Community groups benefit as they receive free trees for their projects. The environment benefits as trees mean habitat for the native insects, birds, reptiles and mammals. And companies benefit too. ‘Through CSR programs, companies can help society while promoting their own brands. Corporate social responsibility can boost morale and can help both employees and employers feel more connected with the world around them’ (www.investopedia.com).
