Scientific Turf Solutions. Appreciating the importance of trees.

Given how much Scientific Turf Solutions are out in nature, the team appreciate how important native vegetation and trees are key to a vibrant, healthy ecosystem.

TREES PLANTED

105

Thanks to the commitment of turf specialists, Scientific Turf Solutions sixty (60) new native trees have been planted in Queensland to encourage and entice wildlife preservation. John Hines and the team have been providing solutions to big and small-scale turf for all sectors. Their goal is to support and give product education to their customers. Spaces they enhance include sports fields, golf courses, school grounds, etc.

 

 

The trees sponsored by the team at Scientific Turf Solutions were planted along Thistle Road, Maadi, in Tropical QLD (Djiru Country) by local community group Brettacorp Inc. Some of the species planted included, Alexander Palm, Blue Quandong, Queensland Maple, Blue Ginger, Dianella, Black Bean, Cordyline, Flame Tree, Figs, Glochidon, Ulysses Butterfly Tree, Umbrella Tree and Acacia.

Over time, these trees will provide a food source for local wildlife species, especially the Southern Cassowary (endangered). The trees will also improve the waterways dramatically and lead to longer water retention across the seasons as well as providing homes for frogs and other small aquatic insects. This reforestation project will extend and connect native remnant forest and fully rejuvenate the site with native flora.

Some of the native animals that will benefit from this project include; Southern Cassowary, Broad-shouldered Dove, Emerald Dove, Imperial Pigeon, Bee Eaters, Currajongs, Sun Birds, Scrub Fowls, Eagles, Kites, Hawks, Bats, Green Frog species, and native mice and small marsupials. This area is also home to the Ulysses Butterfly, and the Cairns Birdwing Butterfly. This area is an absolute paradise.

 

A huge thank you to sponsors of Fifteen Trees for helping us create new habitat that supports endangered species in the Cassowary Coast region of Tropical North Queensland. With your help we are making homes and providing food for our native fauna. Thank you.

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.
