According to Sustainability Victoria, the average Australian lifestyle produces 15,000kg of carbon per year. If that sounds like a lot, it is! Over its lifetime, a tree can collect and store 268kg. This means, we each need to plant 58 trees per year to bring our individual carbon production down to zero. A little tricky for most of us to do in our own backyards, and this is where Fifteen Trees comes in. We can plant these 60 (we’ve rounded up) trees on your behalf.

 

Individual memberships for 2021 are now open!

 

We set up Friends of Fifteen Trees Memberships in 2019, aiming to find people willing to purchase 60 trees each. We had a great response and collected 60 memberships. And that meant 3,600 trees for Landcare Groups in Tasmania. Here is the report for those trees.

 

Last year, we ‘upped the ante’ and aimed for 100 members. That equated to 100 X 60 = 6,000 trees! We offered those trees to fire affected community groups in Victoria (Gippsland) for their revegetation projects as well as community groups in Tasmania and Western Australia, who were working on environmental projects. Here is the full report of those trees.

We know Australia is in dire shape; rivers are being mismanaged, huge areas of bushland are being cut down in Queensland, Tasmania has a new battle to save the Tarkine, Victorians are battling to establish the Great National Park, and don’t even mention Adani (or should we say Bravus)!! And last summer we saw the worst  bushfires in living history. It can be overwhelming and paralysing to see such devastation. And so, we want to include you in something special. And maybe help move you past the feeling of helplessness to one of action and community. We’d love you to consider becoming a Friend of Fifteen Trees.
