Household Recycling Supports Tree Health

Sustainability Victoria

A new and innovative tree planting and staking solution, made from Victoria's household recycling is improving the health of young trees - and supporting Victoria's sustainable future. Tree stakes, traditionally made from timber, are used to support the establishment of a young tree in the ground.

Recycling innovation

Rob and Tim Buruma, founders of Natural Growth Partners, were frustrated at seeing trees being planted using non-sustainable methods after more than 3 decades working as commercial landscapers. So they set out to make tree stakes from a readily available resource - your household recycling.

Cleverly named Tree Coach, their tree stakes rely on Victorians to recycle correctly.
