Our 15,000th trees was planted by the kids from Murk Special School.
The 15.000th  tree was planted by the kids from Cobram Special School.

Over the past 4 years, our trees have gone to landcare groups and school groups, landowners and kindergartens. They have been planted along river banks, on roadside reserves, wildlife corridors, sand dunes and into community gardens. Although predominantly in Victoria, our trees are now being planted in NSW, Tasmania, WA, SA and the ACT. A mixture of wattles and eucalyptus, we’ve also planted some exotics, shrubs and in some cases native grasses – all in the name of biodiversity. We’ve helped in the conservation of some endangered species (such as the Tawny Frogmouth) by providing habitat and collected tonnes and tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere.

A big shout-out to the community groups who I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with.

You are all amazing !
