Trees for our ‘Out on a Limb’ readers.

Sometimes all it takes to make quite a significant difference in the world is to read an email. Did you know that for every person who signs up for our e-news (Out on a Limb), we plant one native tree?

TREES PLANTED

350

That’s right, simply sign up to receive our monthly e-newsletters and a native tree is planted on your behalf. Plus, you’ll have an inbox full of interesting stories and articles, information on upcoming events, and an opportunity to enter our regular eco-competitions.

 

Every June to celebrate National Tree Day (July 30th) we organise the planting of trees for our new Out on a Limb readers. Over the course of the past 12 months, we gathered 350 new readers. And so we organised the planting of 350 native trees.

 

Every new reader to our monthly ‘Out on a Limb’ e-newsletter has one native Australian tree planted on their behalf.

 

Our beautiful partners at Angus & Celeste, have generously sponsored these trees. Angus & Celeste have been with us for some time. Their appreciation of the Australian landscape isn’t just evident in their designs – it’s woven right into the fabric of their business practices. The subscriber seedlings are already in the ground, sending their roots into the soil in the hills of Yea and stretching their tiny leaves to the sun.

The trees were planted in the Upper Goulburn district on two UGLN member’s properties at Yea and Yellow/Diary Creek, VIC.

The Upper Goulburn Landcare Network (UGLN) looks after a diverse geographical area centred north of Melbourne in Victoria. Their committed volunteers plant thousands of trees every year, with a focus on revegetation and weed control. As any good land carer can attest, part of effective weed control includes establishing strong indigenous flora corridors. This creates an environment that makes it harder for weeds to take hold, while also enabling native animals to flourish, water courses to stabilise, and biodiversity to increase.

Ian and Pat Sichlou have fenced off a large area to provide a wildlife corridor on their farm for wildlife moving from the creek area in the west to a large patch of native bushland in the east.

Members of the Yellow/Dairy Creek Landcare Group recently did a great job of helping Jan and Michael to revegetate their Yea property. The revegetation site is a significant conservation area that the Coonans have fenced off from stock to protect this important remnant of grassy forest.

We very much appreciate the assistance we received.

We love our hard-working Landcare Australia partners, we love Angus & Celeste, and we love our Out on a Limb subscribers. We’re also absolutely certain that the district of Yea, is loving those 350 new trees.

And if one tree isn’t quite enough for you, have a think about our subscription service, 60 native trees planted annually all for the cost of a weekly coffee. More details here.
