TREES PLANTED

Hi Colleen We finally got out into the paddocks on Sunday to plant our 60 “fifteen trees”.  A day of planting trees and hearing about carbon tax and renewable energy – a good day it was!  My two sons, Hamish and Morgan, helped me plant the 60 trees to widen our wildlife corridors and the various habitat nodes we have along these corridors.  We planted species that were once found in these woodlands and hope that in the near future they will provide habitat for our local fauna.  We also planted some sheoaks and Melaleucas as wildlife habitat around the perimeter of our house and garden fence.  Thanks Fifteen Trees – every little bit helps to contribute towards improving habitat on our rural property and maybe with a bit of luck, the declining Diamond Firetail will return. Regards Felicity.
Thanks indeed to the two ‘green’ companies who decided to put some money into supporting the planting of trees rural Victoria. Pip from Partycles and Brett from Davis Planning both carbon offset their work cars to enable 60 trees to be planted at Goornang (near Bendigo).  Lets hope the Diamond Firetail makes a come back – Pip and Brett I think this bird could become your mascot!
Keep warm everyone – Colleen
