The program aims to restore the natural landscape and reconnect habitats by linking small patches of remaining vegetation to create a 200km corridor from inland to the coast.
The trees planted sequester carbon, help reduce soil salinity, help combat wind and water erosion, enhance biodiversity and restore habitat for native animals
From our Plant a tree Program partner, Carbon Neutral
“Our 2021 planting was completed late last month. We actually exceeded the total planned planting area, finishing up with more than 600ha of newly established plantings across 2 of our properties (including our new property in Perenjori Shire which we purchased earlier this year – photo attached). The early rains from TC Seroja were very welcome to help prepare the ground for planting.
As we do each year, we planted via direct seeding as well as planting nursey-raised seedlings. The total mix across the 2 sites for 2021 was 66 indigenous species: it’s super important that we maintain our focus on enhancing the biodiversity across our planting sites.”
