TREES PLANTED

The Myrniong Catchment Project is aiming to revegetate 34km of creek bank to allow the flow of biodiversity of native trees, shrubs and grasses.

When Ballarat companies such as Integra Group jump on board and help out with funding, it makes the job of the landcare groups (who are mostly volunteers) much easier. They can then concentrate on preparing the land (usually by removing the gorse and blackberry) and in some cases fencing off the planting sites from cattle and sheep.

On a windy, wet Friday in September, the Pentland Hills Landcare group headed out to plant over 1000 trees, of which 150 were donated by Integra.

Thank you to Andre Agterhuis and the team at Integra Group for your continued support of our native environment. To date, this company has helped plant over 600 trees at  Mt Clear and Horsham, Ross Creek, and Bald Hills.
