Trovio Group. Planting for Investors & Partners.

Consumers prefer to purchase from businesses that are environmentally responsible. At Trovio, they are walking the talk by purchasing 50 native trees for us to distribute to a community group for planting. A tangible environmental project to sponsor.

TREES PLANTED

50

With offices around the world, Trovio is at the forefront of the changing digital and traditional economies. This year, the Sydney office decided to thank their investors and partners by planting 50 native Australian trees on their behalf.

 

 

Trovio’s Environmental Commitment.

In today’s world, how we contribute to the protection of the environment and the carbon footprint of our activities must be front of mind. Trovio is committed to using our position to maximise innovation in the carbon industry and minimise net emissions of our assets and operations.

 

The trees (mostly Blackbox and River Red gums) were planted at Barham, in Trovio’s home state of NSW, home of the Wamba and Perrepa People. Importantly, Trovio also purchased the tree guards for this project. A tree guard helps keep the new seedlings from grazers, in particular rabbits and kangaroos. Inside the plastic sleeves, a microclimate is created also helping protect from harsh UV, drifting sand, frost, and wind.

 

Tree guards give the young seedlings protection as they take root.

 

This site is part of the Wakool River floodplain. The area has been heavily modified for agricultural purposes, with little remnant flora remaining. In patches where native flora has been preserved, there is a very unique and biodiverse vegetation community. Over 30 different species of indigenous plants have been identified on this site.

The trees were planted to replant bare areas that were cleared in the past for farming purposes. This will help to form a wildlife corridor which will join to the vegetation which buffers the Wakool river. Animals, birds and lizards will be able to move more safely between these zones and be provided with habitat, shelter and food.

 

Boobook Owl, Pied Butcher and Willy Wag-tail.

 

The area is well know for it’s native wildlife; kangaroos, goannas, skinks, red belly black snake, lots of insects and butterflies, and many bird species such as the Willy Wag-tails, Ibis, White-faced heron and White Throated heron, galah, Pied Butcher bird, kookaburra, White Browed babbler, Eastern rosella, magpies, Boobook owl and raptor species (Wedge-tail eagles, Whistling kites).

 

A big thank you and note of appreciation to those that have paid for these trees. Without you this replanting project would have never been started. Not only have your funds put trees back into the ground,  but they have provided motivation and inspiration to ensure that this very important replanting project is completed. Thank you so much.
