Assisting our Local Communities

Spring is well and truly upon us and everything is once again bursting with life. Strolling around the TreeCo nursery is a real treat and a testament to Rudi and Leske’s commitment to growing only the finest quality trees - enabling you our valued client, to in turn offer your customers the very best.

During National Arbour Month, TreeCo had the honour of being given the opportunity to donate thirty trees to a most deserving institution.

Ligstraal school in Paarl serves intellectually and physically impaired learners from the surrounding farms and rural areas. Their focus is on developing improved literacy and numeracy skills as well as technology skills, enabling these otherwise disadvantaged learners to become an integral part of society in the future.

We spent a most rewarding day assisting the educators in developing a real interest amongst the learners as to the importance that trees play in creating and maintaining a healthier and more sustainable environment. We were able to explain and to demonstrate the correct way to plant and care for a tree and were thrilled by the enthusiasm shown by the learners.

We plan to make similar donations to various communities on a regular basis in future and would like to encourage all of you to do the same, working together 24/7/365, towards a greener, healthier planet for all.
