TREES PLANTED

870

G.J. Gardner Homes has been supporting our community tree planting projects since 2013, and in that time, we have planted over 75,000 trees across Victoria and Tasmania due to their generous support. That impressive number comes because G.J. Gardner plants 15 native trees for every home it builds in Tasmania and Victoria.

G.J. Gardner prides itself on being a practical, hands-on family affair, and in past years staff have happily gone out with their local community to plant their trees themselves. To keep the local connection, all trees are planted near the offices managing the builds, between 200-900 trees for every district. Local Landcare groups determine the best tree species for the site. The seedlings themselves are often grown by local independent nurseries who have collected seed from the region by hand (with the proper licensing, of course). The sites that have been planted have included nature reserves, parklands, roadsides, school grounds, riverbanks & rural properties.

 

G.J. Gardner’s core business is building homes. Safe, secure places for families to grow and thrive for many years to come. We love that alongside this G.J. Gardner is planting forests, which is very much the same thing; safe, secure places for fauna and flora to grow and thrive for many years to come.

Reassuring our green future takes many hands.

 

Plantings are now in the ground and roots are being established to anchor the trees, for this greening expedition at Meredith, in Wadawurrung country.

 

Some of this area’s original indigenous flora species include Red Stringybark, Messmate Stringybark, Broadleaf Peppermint, Manna Gum, Swamp Gum and Red Ironbark. And these are amongst some of the species planted by the Bamganie-Meredith Landcare Group.

 

“Thank you to G.J. Gardner for your support of our tree planting project. Here’s hoping you can come and join us next year to do some tree planting together.”
