Invitation to a tree planting event

Dear Welgevonden Estate Homeowners and Residents

We invite you all to a tree planting event on Welgevonden Estate during which the Executive Mayor of Stellenbosch – Councillor Gesie van Deventer – will be planting a tree as our guest of honour. This event forms part of and is a highlight on Welgevonden Estate’s National Arbor Week.

The details are as follows:

  • Date: Monday 5 September 2022

  • Time: 10:00

  • Place: On the triangular green area near the Stellenbrew coffee kiosk

We also wish to thank the residents who will be sponsoring trees to be planted on the estate during Arbor Week. At the time of sending this invitation, all the Excom members have committed to sponsoring a tree each, and we have already received pledges from 30 residents.

The invitation to sponsor a tree still applies. Please contact the Welgevonden Estate office at or on 021 889 5450 if you want to be part of this project in any of the following ways:

  • By buying trees that can be ordered at a special price via the estate’s administrative office and to plant them on you own property yourself.

  • By sponsoring one or more trees – which will be labelled with your name – to be planted by estate management on the estate’s common property.

We look forward to seeing you on 5 September at 10:00 for the tree planting ceremony!
