Rob’s Horticulture. Supporting the native environment.

Keen to support Australian revegetation projects, Rob’s Horticulture has purchased 60 native trees for a community in the Northeast corner of Victoria.

TREES PLANTED

60

Rob’s Horticulture has a dedicated following in NSW’s Wollondilly, Macarthur & Wingecarribee. Their lawn and garden care programs are just the tip of their professional iceberg, with a team of gardening experts committed to maximising their clients’ investment by fostering a healthy and vibrant garden all year-round. Taking care of the whole system, starting with the soil, is a key part of Rob’s method. Qualified horticulturalists provide disease and pest identification and control which do not compromise plant, human and animal health.

 

 

Rob’s Horticulture recently combined forces with Fifteen Trees to plant 60 trees that will contribute to the environmental health of the future by providing essential habitat for local fauna and reducing carbon release.

 

The trees were planted over the winter months by the Greta Valley Landcare Group at Moyhu, on Taungurung country in North East Victoria. They were planted along the Moyhu Walking track, Meadow Creek Rd, just outside the township.

The planting was very diverse, with over 30 different species planted in clumps along the walking track. The vegetation in this area is typically comprised of riparian species (Creekline Grassy Woodland/Floodplain Riparian Woodland) along the waterways of Boggy Creek and King River.

 

We are very thankful for all the financial support and assistance that has been provided to make our Moyhu Walking Track and Landcare Botanic Gardens a reality.

At this particular site, the objective of the planting was to create a demonstration site with all of the typical indigenous local species on display. Some of the species planted included: Blackwood, Silver Wattle, Silver Banksia, River Bottlebrush, Common Cassinia, Drooping Sheoak, Red River Gum, Yellow Box, Red Box and Rough barked honey-myrtle.

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.

The Institute of Public Accounts has supported one of our revegetation projects by purchasing a tree for every attendee at their recent Victorian Conference held in Ballarat, VIC. The trees (70) were planted in the district, in the weeks following the conference.
