Harrison Funerals at Linton Cemetery.

TREES PLANTED

Harrison Funerals ‘strive to ensure that every family’s funeral experience is a positive one and through (their) care and service (they) are able to ease some of the grief and assist the healing process’. With the assistance of Fifteen Trees, Harrison Funerals plant one mature tree on the behalf of every family who use their service.

  Harrison Funerals Hi_Res_RGB   Recently, 15 mature trees were planted at Linton Cemetery due to the generosity of this caring couple. At Linton Cemetery, the committee are continually trying to beautify the cemetery landscape with new trees and to ensure trees are replenished as needed.

On Saturday the 5th of October we held our tree planting working bee where nine diligent community members helped to dig the holes, plant, guard and water our fantastic 15 trees. Everyone on the Trust committee is over the moon regarding your program. And a special thank you to Brian and Maree Harrison who has been giving out trees to community groups like ours for the past 9 years. It is people like the Harrisons that make our work that much more enjoyable.   Chris Grigg | Trust Member | Linton Cemetery

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.
