ABOUT REFOREST NOW

ReForest Now was created and is now sustained by the need for a comprehensive not-for-profit model of reforestation and regeneration in Australia. Australia has fallen far behind many countries that are offering more attractive tree planting and restoration programs at one tenth of the price (at $1.00 per tree) compared to our Australian national average of $10.00 per tree.

What ReForest Now has done is bring the cost of diverse rainforest planting down to $5.00 per tree in Australia, which of course is a challenge given the hundreds of species we plant.

We do this not because it is easy but because we live on the driest continent on Earth and it is in desperate need of reforestation, thus we must find a way to encourage the repair of this part of the world, despite the high costs associated with every aspect of working here in Australia.

We cover a wide array of internal services without being compromised on price by external for-profit detours. 

Staff cover the follow activities;

1. Seed collecting

2. Seed germination and plant propagation

3. Nursery construction and maintenance

4. Site inspection and landholder engagement

5. Rainforest regeneration

6. Weed drilling (including Camphor laurel)

7. Logistics of equipment, materials and vehicles

8. Augering (drilling holes for tree plantings)

9. Tree planting

10. Site maintenance/tree care

11. Report writing

12. Science production

13. Grant writing

14. Partnerships management

15. Financial management

16. Website management

17. Social media - Facebook and Instagram

18. Filming, interviews, podcasts and blogs
