One of the big answers to so many of the environmental problems we face is ‘plant a tree’. And if you can plant more than one, all the better. Every year, depending on the funding we receive, we plant as many seedlings as possible.
We also provide subsidies to farmers and other landholders to fence off their remnant native bush to prevent stock access. This encourages undergrowth and supports habitat creation for native species, many of which rely on ground cover for feed and protection.
Trees have multiple benefits, including reducing water logging, preventing wind and water erosion, reducing soil compaction, bringing back valuable microbes, providing stock shelter and wind breaks, providing habitat for native species, carbon sequestration, air quality, and generally improving the look and feel of our landscapes. We believe all of these benefits, and more, make it essential to ensure that as many trees are planted and protected as possible.
