A group of local builders have joined with Sunshine Coast Council to plant 350 trees at Point Cartwright to provide extra shade and shelter for local wildlife. 

As part of a partnership with council, Stroud Homes has committed to planting 15 new trees for each home it builds on the Sunshine Coast.

Now in its second year, the partnership has already seen Stroud Homes successfully plant 600 trees on the Sunshine Coast, supporting council’s environmental rehabilitation and conservation efforts.

Stroud Homes director Daniel Chapman said the group was dedicated to helping   the Sunshine Coast be a sustainable community. 

“We only use the most energy efficient, environmentally friendly materials on all our sites, and we are proud to join with council to improve the natural environment,” Mr Chapman said 

Division 4 Councillor John Connolly said the partnership demonstrated the benefits of local businesses working with council, and the community, to protect and enhance our beaches and conservation estates.

 “I’m proud to join the team from Stroud Homes here today, and congratulate them on their efforts to support sustainable practices here on the Sunshine Coast,” Cr Connolly said.  

 “We welcome other organisations to get involved in a tree planting activity.

 “It’s a fulfilling opportunity for positive team building with health and wellbeing outcomes while doing something good for the environment.”
