Thunder Electrical Services takes the sting out of calling an electrician because they guarantee an honest quote with no hidden costs. The founder, Myles Varley, harks from the mid north coast of NSW where he built the successful electrical business, Varley Electric. Now operating across the Coffs Habour region, the Bellingen Shire and Nambucca Heads as Thunder Electrical Services, Myles brings the same enthusiasm and commitment to providing a quality trade service experience to the area.

 

 

 

 

Site A | Mulgoa Valley, NSW | 105 trees

 

Thunder Electrical Services has recently sparked change in the Mulgoa Valley, NSW, by partnering with Fifteen Trees to plant 105 trees in the area. With this small forest, Myles is building habitat for fauna and improving our collective future by greening the local landscape.

The trees are helping with the regeneration of ecological communities under threat, in particular the Shale Sandstone Transition Forest in the Sydney Basin Bioregion which is ‘critically endangered’. In doing so it will also increase canopy, shade and food sources for nectar-eating species such as Australian parrots.

Dominant canopy species in the area planted are Grey Gum, Forest Red Gum, Ironbarks and Wattles. The plantings were designed to increase cover and supplement the area with other tree species that are part of the ecological communities listed.

Some of the species planted include; Tick Bush, White feather honey myrtle, Gossamer Wattle, Hickory Wattle, Rough-barked apple, Broad-leafed apple, White Stringy Bark, Narrow-leaf ironbark, Silky Hakea, Willow-leafed Hakea, Slender Tea-tree, Yellow Tea-tree and Forest red-gum.

 

Thank you for providing our trees, which are now thriving as part of our long-term work to regenerate and conserve the threatened ecological communities on this species property in Mulgoa.

Thank you to Myles and the team at Thunder Electrical Services for your support of tree planting projects in your home state.

 

Site B | Bendigo, VIC | 75 trees

 

The trees were planted by Northern Bendigo Landcare (NBLG) who held their annual National Tree Day event at the Huntly Streamside Reserve, in Bendigo. The volunteers planted native species alongside the creek. This site had been damaged in the past due to gold mining and grazing.

Forty-eight (48) people turned out to help plant the trees.  A highlight was having students from a nearby Primary School attend with their families. These students are part of the school’s Green Magpies, a group of sustainability leaders.  They were extremely keen and enjoyed being involved in practical community action to complement school learning.
