Smeaton Property

TREES PLANTED

Hope you get these photos Colleen the school kids helped us plant them. Thank you for the trees they went along an erosion gully at Ullina.’ T.B. Thanks to the generous support of Pam Whiteroad from CVGT Ballarat (who carbon offset 3 of their vehicles) and Andrew Howard from Pack and Send in Howitt St (with 1 vehicle offset), sixty native trees were planted at the Smeaton Property at Clunes. The local school kids helped out and before the rains came again, planted all trees in one afternoon. These trees will provide native birds, insects, lizards and mammals with habitat and after a few years will become a wildlife corridor with its own micro-environment. To date, ‘Fifteen Trees’ have now carbon offset 133 cars and by the end of the planting season (end of this month) through support from local Ballarat companies such as CVGT and Pack and Send, we will have supplied close to 2000 trees to land-care groups, schools and land-owners for planting.  If you know of anyone who would like to get involved either through carbon offsetting or planting trees please direct them to the ‘Fifteen Trees’ website. Cheers – Colleen

Individual actions really do matter! Individually we can really only make small differences to the world around us, but collectively our numbers add up. And if enough individuals are involved then forests can be grown!

We have a handful of organisations who purchase trees when they can. These organisations are masters of ingenuity when it comes to incorporating tree planting into their business practices.

The Institute of Public Accounts has supported one of our revegetation projects by purchasing a tree for every attendee at their recent Victorian Conference held in Ballarat, VIC. The trees (70) were planted in the district, in the weeks following the conference.
