Central Gippsland (Vic).


Towards the end of winter, over Gippsland way, 225 trees were planted through the generosity of local building company G.J. Gardner Homes Sale. The trees went to 2 sites, 115 to Nicki and Peter Jennings in Giffard West and another 110 trees to Elizabeth Balderstone at Warrigal Creek. As Elizabeth was the recipient of the State Landcare Award (2014) we know these trees are in very good hands. G J Gardener 15 Trees 008 Nicki writes ..  Hi Colleen, A team of office staff from GJG Sale, (including the boss Anthony Ruff) came out this afternoon to plant 115 trees. It was lovely to have them involved in such positive and generous work. The sun shone and it was all done in a friendly and chatty way. We also shared some refreshments which rounded off a great afternoon. The trees are all from local seed and a local nursery. They are the same species growing in the adjoining roadside vegetation where some of the seed was collected. The planting which is part of a greater 750 m long planting will help improve and protect the roadside vegetation. Thank you for involving us in Fifteen Trees. photo 2 Thank you to Anthony and the team from GJG Sale for not only paying for the trees but also for heading out to 2 properties to help plant them. A fantastic effort for which both Nikki and Elizabeth were both very grateful and appreciative. Slainte – 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.
