TreeProject gets urban and rural communities working together to put trees back on the land. Our network of trained volunteers grow indigenous seedlings for rural landholders and Landcare groups who need our help with revegetation.
Providing ‘at-cost’ seedlings from TreeProject – or the support and advice to people who want to grow their own — is often all the incentive and encouragement landholders need to start restoring degraded areas.
TreeProject is a community-based, not-for-profit (charitable) organisation.
