Tree planting is our primary activity in Australia. We plant trees to reforest cleared land that was once tropical and subtropical forest in Far North Queensland and Northern New South Wales. Reforestation in these areas is essential to support the biodiversity of the region and to expand the forests for their longterm survival.
We grow our trees in our nursery in Mullumbimby and give a high priority to endangered and critically endangered species as well as those that support native fauna.
Trees can, like sponges, help sequester carbon and thereby reduce the impact of man-made CO2 emissions. Locally, trees provide habitat for wildlife, food for people and animals, and stabilise the soil.
Below you can see our dense planting technique, with reference to the size of a ute in the image. Reforesting this way isn't just about canopy, it's at this higher density that we can bring back wildlife - with complex ecosystems established quickly.
