Tree Planting Project

Jul 17, 2020

Are you passionate about trees? Would you like to donate a tree towards the ecological enhancement of our beautiful estate?

Trees bring greenery and greenery brings happiness. Let’s decorate our park area and nature with green life.

The donation cost for a tree amounts to R440.00 per tree and includes the following:
1. 80L Tree
2. Compost
3. Bone Meal
4. Delivery of the tree
5. Planting of the tree
6. Frost cover if needed

Additional option:
1. Tree tag at R25.00 per tag. The tree tag will be placed on the tree once the tree has reached maturity (approximately 2 years) and will be kept at the Estate Office.
2. The following information will appear on the tree tag:
2.1 Name of family and year sponsored
2.2 Common name of the tree
2.3 Scientific name of the tree

Step 1
Please visit the park area and select a flag number. Your flag will indicate where and what type of tree will be planted. There are currently 50 flags to start phase 1.

Step 2
Decide on a tree according to the variety of trees to choose from the below list of indigenous trees for phase 1 of the park tree planting project.

Types of Trees:

number, and the tree type to Jolene via estatemanager@rietvleiridge.co.za.
