Tree Planting Support from G. J. Gardner Bacchus Marsh


Ross Morley, Managing Director of G. J. Gardner Homes has been supporting our native environment (through Fifteen Trees) since 2013 and has helped plant 1000’s of 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 7,000 trees planted by schools, landcare and various environmental groups.

This year, Ben purchased 300 trees for Coimadai Landcare. Moira Ross from the group then helped plant 150 trees at the local Coimadai Primary School and another 150 trees at a Bacchus Marsh reserve.

Hi Colleen, Coimadai Primary school is a small rural school located just outside Bacchus Marsh. We have 56 students in the school. The school had our tree planting day on the 14th of August. We planted 150 trees & shrubs in and around our school. Students worked in pairs. Senior students buddied up with the junior students. All staff were involved. Senior students dug the holes for the trees using the larger utilities and the junior students then helped prepare the holes and together they planted the shrubs and placed mulch around them before putting the tree guards in place. Moira Ross | Coimadai Landcare Member Thank you Ben and the team from G.J Gardner Bacchus Marsh for your continued support. In years to come, students from the primary school will be able to swing from the branches of your trees and play chasey around their trunks. Slainte – Colleen  [/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

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.
