Planted in

It takes a village.

This season Nicholson Construction has partnered with Fifteen Trees to plant 300 trees at a revegetation site in Ross Creek, and another 300 with the Numurkah Urban Landcare group, part of the broader Goulburn Murray Landcare Network.



The Nicholson family name has been associated with quality construction in the Victorian region for over 120 years and shows no sign of disappearing any time soon.

The signature is everywhere, from the Mars Stadium in Ballarat, to Deakin University accommodation in Warrnambool, to significant hospital upgrades in Kerang and Castlemaine. With a raft of major heritage restorations under their belt as well, there is no major project Nicholson can’t tackle.



Nicholson Construction’s longevity is testament to their ability to build trust, deliver the goods, and invest in the region. Their impressive portfolio isn’t a matter of chance. It exists because its people create and nurture genuine relationships with their community and can show they they’re here for the long haul. Including when it comes to giving back to the environment.

The wetland site at Woady Yaloak Primary School – Ross Creek Campus was prepared by Ballarat’s Damascus Secondary College students to prevent kangaroos & rabbits ruining the new vegetation.


“At Nicholson Construction we like to give back to the community that we live, work and build in. Environmentally, planting trees in conjunction with Fifteen Trees is a great way for us to do this and we are proud that we can continue to do this.”

Nicholson also sponsored 600 tree guards for their seedlings, a vital part of ensuring the best possible growing conditions. By sponsoring trees Nicholson is not only reducing its business impact on the environment, but also enabling regional Landcare Groups to plan and complete vital land management projects. It really does take a village to raise a forest.


We need someone to sponsor the trees, someone to grow them, someone else to facilitate the planting, a crew of passionate planters to get them into the ground, and a strong sense of a shared future to make it all happen. This is what connection looks like in practice, and why we value our ongoing partnerships with businesses like Nicholson Construction so highly.
