G.J. Gardner Homes plants trees for Gippsland.

TREES PLANTED

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. GJGLogo_NO-TAG_WHITE_BG_lrgMichael Ellett from G.J Gardner Homes East Gippsland is a generous supporter of local community groups and their tree planting projects. This year, Michael purchased 405 trees for a project at Cobblers Creek (Bairnsdale). Andy Booth from Gippsland Plains Conservation Management Network organised the site and tree species, and together they went out and planted the trees.

Hi Colleen, The planting went very well. There were 4 lads that came out planting in some pretty trying weather conditions. The farm we planted on was Laurie and Barbera Neve. They were the first landholders to become involved with the  ‘Lungs to the Lakes’ re-vegetation project. The plan is to revegetate and link existing native tree remnants with each other that exist along Cobblers Creek, Smiths Creek and parts of Macleods Morass. Macloeds Morass is home to many rare and endangered wetland birds, frogs and migratory birds. One of the odd thing about this  re-vegetation project is that the dominant upper story species is Snow Gum ( Eucalyptus pauciflora). Its origin is not certain but is certainly adds an interesting aspect to the project. Our aim is to link and revegetate 5.5 km of Cobblers Creek and 3 km of Smiths Creek (a tributary of Cobblers Creek). Andy Booth | Facilitator | Gippsland Plains CMN
Thank you to Michael and the team from the Bairnsdale office for all your work in getting these trees planted. A wild day out planting is what I have heard. Great work. Slainte – Colleen[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
