Kings Cars and 300 community trees

TREES PLANTED

Peter King from King’s Cars Ballarat has been a generous supporter of Fifteen Trees for 7 years. During that time he has helped community groups in the Ballarat district plant over 6,500 trees.

Fifteen Trees plants 15 trees for every Mitsubishis ASX sold at the dealership. Corporate social responsibility at its best. Last month, 300 of Peter’s trees were planted at across 3 sites: the Girl Guide Hall at Lingbogol (120 trees), Waubra (60 trees) and Skipton PS (120 trees).   New-Kings-CMYK  
Hi Colleen, The planting went really well yesterday. We had our Ballarat Begonia Girl Guides (aged 6-10) assist us whilst on camp, and their dads came out for the planting of the 120 trees. They were a great help. Lingbogol is going to look fantastic when the trees mature! Thanks again to you and to Peter at Kings Cars. Kelli Morgan | Leader | Ballarat Girl Guides.

Thanks to Fifteen Trees and Peter King, we were able to plant a double row of trees along one of the laneways on our property at Waubra. The trees were sourced locally from Avalon Nursery near Ballarat, giving us a variety of different natives that had been grown in the nearby area and were already acclimatised to the chilly Ballarat weather.

A mix of tall and short natives were selected to attract the native wildlife as well as provide adequate shelter for livestock in summer and winter.

On the 27th of July 2017, all of Skipton Primary School’s students attended Planet Ark School Tree Day organised by our science teacher Georgie. We all planted 1 tree each, the Grade Five Sixes helped their prep buddies plant trees. All together we planted 120 trees! 40 Hedge wattle, 40 Black wattle and 40 Red gum. We planted our trees at Mt Emu Creek behind The Skipton Common.

We would like to thank: Roger Thomas from Ballarat Environmental Network for educating us about and helping us plant the trees. Peter King for donating all the trees. Megan Read for donating guards and stakes. Parent helpers: Sara Cahill, John Connell, Lisa Wills, Jane Gardener and Jane Boot.

Altogether Tree Day was a great day and was lots of fun for all of us!
