Australia

  • Australia is home to a huge variety of unique plants and animals, with over 80% of native species not found anywhere else. The southern island of Tasmania is one of the last places that many of Australia’s threatened native species can thrive. However, centuries of farming in the Tasmanian midlands have depleted habitats and reduced biodiversity. With fewer places to find shelter and food, some of Australia’s endangered endemic species – including the iconic Tasmanian Devil – are at further risk. Planting trees with this project will protect Tasmania’s biodiversity while stimulating tourism, creating jobs and revitalizing local farming.
  • Our amazing partners are creating wildlife corridors with local vegetation and tree species from the Eastern Tiers to Central Highlands of Tasmania. Beyond protecting the habitats of seven endangered species, the longterm goals for this project are to establish 1.5 million native plants and sequester over 30,000 tonnes of carbon by 2030. Rebuilding these corridors will also help strengthen the environment against the impact of climate change, now and into the future.
  • Tree Certificate - AustraliaA personalized tree certificate to say thanks for your donation. We’ll also send you updates on our Australian project, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the community and environment.
  • Our partner has chosen trees that will bring the greatest overall benefit to the region. This includes various types of Eucalyptus and Acacia trees, among others, depending on the specific needs of each section of habitat being recreated across the Tasmanian midlands.

Please note:
For “Gift These Trees” option, only one certificate/e-card will be sent per order.
To send certificates to multiple recipients, please make separate orders.

WHY PLANT TREES?

Tasmanian Devil habitat

Protect endangered species

Tasmania is Australia’s last refuge for animals that are now virtually extinct on the mainland, including the Tasmanian Devil, Eastern Bettong, Eastern QuolI and Eastern Barred Bandicoot.

Tasmania tree planting

Engage the community

Our partners are work closely with landholders and the community to integrate ecological outcomes into productive farming landscapes, and create new jobs in the rural Tasmanian economy.

Tasmania tree loss

Preserve native trees

Tasmania is blessed with beautiful, diverse forests, with trees covering two-thirds of the state. By planting native species in degraded areas, we can support this unique and fragile ecosystem.
