If your organisation wants a positive environmental impact by funding tree planting, restoring landscapes, and supporting healthy communities and Country, you’re in the right place!

Plant trees as a business donation without a marketing campaign here.

Or, discuss a partnership program to plant a tree for every new customer or client! We can work with you to integrate tree planting into your business model and provide you with gift certificates and impact reports that you can share. With a partnership program you can engage your employees through our Plant Trees Australia volunteer hub or enhance your culture by planting trees to celebrate employee achievements. To learn more, please see below.

We only plant trees in Australia, where we can guarantee that the trees are native, biodiverse and monitored. We do not plant monocultures. Our trees are protected for up to 100 years, ensuring your investment leaves an enduring legacy.

All funds go towards supporting our charitable objectives which are planting native trees and providing educational resources. We also have fundraising and administration costs which a portion of your donation supports. To view our financial reports please go here. If you contribute via plant a tree or carbon offsets your funds will be allocated to planting pools from all of our planting sites.

It really depends. Generally, carbon uptake is measured on a per-hectare basis, rather than a per-tree basis. The amount of carbon sequestered per hectare depends on tree growth, which depends on the species and the planting density. In high rainfall zones with good quality soil, it may take 3-5 trees over 25 years to remove 1 tonne of carbon dioxide. In lower rainfall zones with poorer soil, it could take as many as 15 trees.

We plant on cleared and degraded land across Australia, with a particular focus on the Western Australian wheatbelt. We mostly work on rural land where large areas have been cleared for agriculture. In 2021 we have expanded our portfolio of projects to develop community and urban projects throughout Australia. These will focus on activating community tree planting and climate mitigation. You can find out more about our current and past projects here.

Sometimes. Many of our projects are located in remote areas without facilities to cater for volunteer groups. Our carbon projects must adhere to strict planting methodologies so we tend to use professional planting contractors.

As we undertake more community planting projects we may have more opportunities for self-funded volunteer groups. Please contact us if you are interested.

Business contributions can be more complicated. It depends on the nature of the gift/contribution. The ATO has information on their website or please contact us.

We follow the methodologies set out by the Australian Governments Emission Reduction Fund, using the Full Carbon Accounting Model (FullCAM) to measure the amount of CO2e captured.  Due to the high cost and administration requirements, these projects are not externally audited. This enables us to take on new projects and plant more trees. We supply in-depth planting and monitoring reports and photography to provide transparency around on-ground activities. 

Our carbon offsets/credits are not verified or accredited offsets as they have not been validated and verified by an accredited third party. Unverified offsets are issued by the carbon project developer using relevant methodologies but are not independently verified.

choose your path

When your business donates a tree, you fund our planting projects across Australia. We plant native trees and shrubs on degraded land. Each species planted is specially chosen to be appropriate for the land we are planting on.

We would like to discuss a marketing campaign to plant trees.

"I met Catherine at a United Nations SDG event, and we chatted about how their calculator could help us calculate the emissions from our event and that it could be offset via local tree planting projects. The alignment to our purpose was instantly connected."
