Since Greenfleet commenced in 1997, they have planted over 8.6 million native trees, across more than 400 sites, on behalf of individual and business supporters just like AE Smith

Ranging from Yellow Box [Eucalyptus melliodora] to Golden Wattle [Acacia pycnantha], direct-seeding started in June and was completed at the end of August.

Located near Wedderburn, this new reforestation project connects with 830 ha already seeded by Greenfleet in the area.
As they grow, these forests create a link between the remnant pockets of native bushland, allowing native wildlife to thrive.

They’re hoping to see the rare Powerful Owl, the Brush-tailed Phascogale and the endangered Grey-crowned Babbler make a comeback to the region.

The ultimate reason for planting these trees is to create healthy forests that recapture carbon from the atmosphere.
