• I've been very appreciative of his ability to make the impossible seem possible! He does this by being both focussed on what is right for the site and my capacity to manage the project, supporting when the going gets tough (even bringing the family to help get the last few boxes of plants in), and understanding the practical difficulties. He's easy to work with, always available to talk things through with, knowledgeable and committed to seeing the projects succeed,  and I've really enjoyed our interactions over the years.

  • You possess sound knowledge on the SFMP and know the local fauna and flora.  I have often listened to you point out various plants and wonder how does he know so much.  But as I listen I try my best to absorb and learn from you.  The capacity for us to tap into that knowledge and experience has also helped us along our journey and has provided an extra level of comfort on our journey.

  • As a service contractor we provide implementation works to Melbourne Water on behalf of clients in the Stream Frontage Management Scheme. Dean Platt of Tree wishes always provides a clear guide and advice on how these projects should roll out. He is uncompromising in his direction for biodiversity and land management in the Port Phillip and Western Port Catchment. It is clear that Dean has strong relationships with the people he deals with, which is a real, yet un quantifiable asset to Melbourne Water
