Inglewood and Axedale, Victoria

TREES PLANTED

Last month 120 trees were distributed to 2 groups in central Victoria. Both groups sent in lovely photos of which I’ve included here.  Two fantastic companies and some great school kids have made these plantings possible. Hello Colleen, Here is a photos of the 60 trees and shrubs that we planted, we can’t wait for them to grow.  L. Hecker.

You may have to enlarge – but there are trees here.

A Gladman from Axedale writes ‘Saturday morning was spent with our young children planting the 60 trees provided through Fifteen Trees. The wattles will enhance the depleted understorey beneath the mature River Red Gums along the Axe Creek frontage. They will provide valuable habitat for a variety of native birds we spend time admiring. Thanks to those businesses that contribute to this wonderful cause’.

Beautiful setting for more trees.

A couple of companies need to be thanked here. The gorgeous on-line store Angus & Celeste chips in every quarter to enable 75 trees to be planted. Damien from Ecotreasures in Sydney has planted 15 trees on the behalf of customers he took on a bus trip to the Hunter Valley, NSW. And students from Phoenix College Ballarat, had a sausage sizzle at school last term to raise money to pay for the planting of the remainder 30 trees.

Amazing companies and individuals who all have joined forces to help get 120 trees planted in rural Victoria this Spring. Slainte – Colleen[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
