Mother Teresa had it right when she wrote about the power of the collective coming together to creating something wonderful! And here at Fifteen Trees regularly see the power of the collective when we gather trees from numerous small businesses.
Over the past few months, 8 companies and organisations collectively purchased 250 trees for one of our favourite sites (Bendigo) with one of our favourite landing groups (Northern Bendigo Landcare Group). The trees were a mixture of eucalyptus and acacias, all native to the district and supplied by Neangar Nursery in Eaglehawk, VIC.
Once again we have enjoyed generous support from Fifteen Trees and their supporters. We planted these trees at Bendigo Creek Streamside Reserve. We strategically planted these at 1m spacing to provide dense planting with a view to assisting in longer term weed control.
