Reviving Australian Native Forests
With over 123 million hectares of native forests, Australia has the seventh largest forest area in the world, making up three per cent of the Earth’s forests. These forests are unique and varied – ranging from ancient Gondwana rainforest and tropical mangroves to extensive bush lands made up of native acacia, melaleuca and eucalyptus trees.Your donation will help to plant millions of trees across Australia to recover forests affected by the 2019-20 Black Summer Bushfires and restore native habitat vital for wildlife.
One Tree Planted is working with us and with many great partners in Australia to restore the country’s native forests following last season’s catastrophic bushfires. Efforts are focused on mobilizing support for replanting efforts, developing nurseries and planting millions of trees with an army of volunteers and professional crews. Your support will help make sure we’re ready to hit the ground running. By buying books and planting trees in Australia, you’re creating habitat corridors for koalas in New South Wales and Victoria, enhancing biodiversity in Western Australia, and promoting sustainable and regenerative agriculture practices with landowners.
The trees chosen will be native trees that bring the greatest overall benefit to the ecosystem and region. This includes various types of native trees and companion plants. Depending on the specific needs of each section of habitat being restored, native trees may include acacia, banksia, eucalyptus, melaleuca, and many other native species.
