Judy Crocker, (Project Facilitator at the Mid-Loddon Sub-Catchment Management Group) sent in the following report about the Stone-Curlew Project.

 The project was aimed at protecting and enhancing our Box Ironbark and woodland remnants by strengthening the vegetation corridor. This will provide increased habitat for our locally and nationally threatened fauna, in particulare the Bush Stone-curlew (pictured below), Swift Parrot and the Brushed-tailed Phascogale.

Those involved with planting the trees included students from BRITafe, Lockwood South Primary and Lockwood Primary schools.

Thank you to the supporters of Fifteen Trees who enabled us to plant an additional 525 trees in this region.      Regards  Judy Crocker.

This project was part of a massive re-vegetation plan undertaken by Judy at the Mid-Loddon Management Group and one in which Fifteen Trees was proud to be a part of. The  planting of 525 trees (equivalent to 35 cars offset) was made possible by Ballarat City (Peugeot and Honda) whom have been generous supporters of Fifteen Trees since mid 2009. Thank you to Justin Krousoratis and his team at the Ballarat dealership.

Cheers – Colleen.

ps According to Judy there are only 9 Stone Curlews left in the Loddon district of Victoria – hard to believe, sad to believe. People lock your cats up at night!


The number of trees planted with the assistance of Fifteen Trees supporters – 6570.

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.
