Tree Planting Program

Awarded the NSW Excellence Award for Environmental Design by the Institute of Surveyors, Wattle ridge takes a holistic approach to the management of the land upon which it was built.

A massive tree-planting program is underway (14,000 trees so far). Chicken waste is used as a valuable compost to fertilise the trees and surrounding farming land adding vital nutrients to depleted soils. In addition, the recycled water treatment plant helps turn dry unproductive land into timber country.

As well as giving back to the environment, planting these trees helps to offset carbon emissions.
