With thanks!


Every year, Fifteen Trees organises the planting of trees on the behalf of special organisations and individuals as an appreciation of all that they do.

These trees are our way of saying thank you. 

One hundred and sixty-five (165) trees were given to Steve Joblin and the Flowerdale Landcare Group. The trees were planted at the Wheeler property to help re-vegetate land that had been previously poorly managed.
Revegetation along the Creek contributes to bank stabilisation and provides habitat for insects that form part of the diet of the endangered Macquarie Perch that breed in this waterway. The Wheeler family are to be congratulated for the effort they have put in over preceding years to eradicate serious Cape Broom and Blackberry infestations. As Gary commented, “you couldn’t even see the Creek when we got here, the Blackberry was so high”. Steve Joblin | Coordinator | Kinglake Landcare
Big shout out to rockin’ sisters Siobhan McCuskey owner of BASK (15 trees) and Erin McCuskey co-creator of yum studio (15 trees) for your constant support, advice and tellin’ it like it is. To Dave Douglas co-owner at Yu-Gen Power (15 trees) for your business advice and general wonderfulness. To the gang at SEAM (Sustainable Environmental Arts Movement) 60 trees to help reduce the carbon footprint of your actors as they travel around the country side preforming the climate play Ella’s Choice. And finally, 15 trees each for my ACU students – Steph Leigh, Breanna Millard, Erin Harvey and Amber (not a fossil) Jones. Four great students who know a thing or two about climate change.

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.
