A TREE FOR A TREE
Our 'Tree for a Tree' mission was launched because we recognised the impact our industry can have on the environment and we wanted to develop a community based initiative to help balance it out. That's why when we remove a mature tree, a native tree will be sponsored by us and replanted at community tree planting events in 2022. These events will be hosted by Hobart Arbor Co. and Landcare Tasmania groups with the invitation for our customers and community to get involve and get their hands dirty for trees.
We have an established relationship with Landcare Tasmania and as a corporate member, we are a contributing sponsor, active supporter and participant in community landcare projects in Tasmania. So far we have been lending our hands for National Tree Day, nesting box installations, rodenticides awareness and from the beginning we have been donating money for every mature tree we remove.
NESTING BOX INSTALATIONS
Landcare groups across Tassie build nesting boxes to provide vital habitat for our birds, bats and native wildlife. The growing absence of tree hollows means there is less available habitat for these species. Nesting boxes mimic tree hollows and thereby increase the potential habitat in a landscape.
Of course the nest boxes need to get high in the trees and that’s where we come in as Landcare groups skilled and trained tree-climber and resident nest box installer. We are delighted to support nesting box installations coordinated by Landcare Tasmania across southern areas of our state.
NATIONAL TREE DAY
National Tree Day is Australia's largest community tree planting and nature protection event striving to see over one million new trees, shrubs and grasses planted each year.
It is a call to action for all Australians to put their hands in the earth and give back to their community. Each year, about 300,000 people volunteer their time to engage in environmental activities that educate individuals about the world around them. It's a day to venture outdoors and get to know your community, and most importantly, to have fun!
Once again this year Hobart Arbor Co. Will join a landcare group to plant trees and connect with nature and our community. To get involved send us an email, call or reach out on our social media channels.
