With over 123 million hectares of unique and varied native forests, Australia has the seventh largest forest area in the world, making up 3% of the Earth's forests. Learn more

As tree planting costs are higher in Australia, these projects often utilize blended financing. Your dollar goes to the tree itself, and we collaborate with our amazing partners to ensure it's planted, maintained and monitored the right way.
The combination of low precipitation and record high temperatures during Australia’s most recent (2019–20) summer season, resulted in dramatic wildfires across the country that drew global attention. It is estimated that more than 1 billion animals were killed in the fires. For example, some 8,000 koalas may have perished in last year’s bushfires, and the loss of eucalyptus trees and water supply will continue to affect them as recovery slowly starts to take place. About 30% of their key habitat has been destroyed.
Australia’s forests need active management in order to improve their health, protect wildlife, and reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires in the future. Our projects work with local landowners and environmental organizations to improve the health of Australian forest and bush lands. As well as recovering fire-damaged lands, your support for reforestation in Australia will help restore habitat for native species that depend on these environments, such as koalas, echidnas, sugar gliders and other wildlife found nowhere else in the world.
Restoring forests also means restoring habitat critical to conserving Australia's unique wildlife. Healthy forest ecosystems support higher biodiversity and are more resilient to the stressors of climate change.
Reforestation efforts assist native vegetation in growing back, while also improving soil quality, preventing erosion, and controlling invasive species - which can be particularly aggressive after forest fires without intervention.
Help us prevent bushfires in Australia from spreading catastrophically. Young, healthy forests can help suppress future wildfires and reduce the impact of smoke on public health and native ecosystems..
