Future Projects

Your donations help fund biodiverse tree planting projects that restore Australia’s landscape, sequester carbon, improve soil health, restore water cycles and so much more. In 2022, we will be restoring more than 600 hectares of degraded land and funding several community planting projects. Find out more about our upcoming projects below.

Porongurup, WA

Minang Noongar Country | Scheduled 2022 | 30 ha

This 30 hectare site is located directly adjacent to the Porongurup National Park in the Great Southern region of WA. This area is known for its astounding biodiversity and is home to more than 750 native plant species, 10 of which are endemic. Having previously been cleared for agriculture, the landholder wishes to restore biodiversity and canopy cover to the property, ultimately providing a place for tourists to camp amongst the trees. Planting on this site will begin in 2022. Lines will be ripped during autumn and a biodiverse seed mix will be directly sewn during the winter months.

Wiilman Noongar Country | Scheduled 2022 | Funding 55,000 Trees

We are partnering with Activate Tree Planting (ATP) to restore degraded areas of a farm in the Shire of Narrogin, approximately two hours southeast of Perth. ATP is a volunteer-based organisation that hosts family-friendly tree planting parties across the WA Wheatbelt. They create unique events that combine music, art and local culture to connect rural and urban communities and repair degraded agricultural land. We have committed to funding 65,000 salt-tolerant seedlings which will be planted by volunteers in creek buffer areas and valley flats across the property to connect remnant bush and restore the land.

Widjabul Country | Scheduled 2022 | 33 ha

Located in a medium to high-value koala habitat, this land was previously used to graze Dexter cattle and has been extensively cleared. This 33 hectare ecological restoration project will provide a wildlife corridor linking up remnant bushland between two national parks. Our aim is to restore the site to a thriving forest, increasing habitat for a range of endangered species (including koalas), improving biodiversity, and encouraging further natural regeneration. In 2021 we began bush regeneration work at the site. This included the removal of invasive species such as camphor laurel and privet. In 2022 we will be planting a diverse mix of approximately 70,000 native dry rainforest, sclerophyll and riparian species across the site.

Miyawaki Forests - Perth, WA

Whadjuk Noongar Country | Scheduled 2022 | Funding 2,100 Trees

We are working with Dr Grey Coupland (Harry Butler Institute) and the local community to develop Miyawaki mini urban forests across suburbs of Perth that are particularly impacted by the urban heat island effect. These fast-growing, low maintenance native forests help to cool thermal hotspots and provide shade and amenity. They also provide habitat for native fauna, reduce the effects of storm water runoff and help seed rainfall. In 2022, we will be funding six of these micro forests in schools and community parks across the Perth City area. Planting Miyawaki forests offers valuable learning opportunities for school children and allows them to take practical action in the face of climate change.

Nanda Country | Scheduled 2022 and beyond | 1,350 ha

This Reserve is located within the Southwest Botanical Province of Western Australia – one of only 35 global biodiversity hotspots. We are working with Bush Heritage Australia to restore 1,350 hectares of cleared land with a biodiverse mix of native trees and shrubs. Since 2019 we have planted more than 600 hectares of the Reserve. The planting will now move towards the sandier soils. This area is more technically difficult to plant, particularly with regards to seed propagation, climate, and soil moisture retention. In 2022, we will be trialling the propagation of several new species, as well as alternative seeding techniques to ensure the restoration of this area is a success.

Wanderosa Animal Sanctuary - Wandering, WA

Wiilman Noongar Country | Scheduled 2022 | Funding 20,000 Trees

Wandering is around 2 hours southeast of Perth in WA’s Wheatbelt region. In 2022, we will be funding 20,000 seedlings at the Wanderosa Farm Animal Sanctuary – a working farm focused on animal welfare. For this project, we are partnering with Activate Tree Planting (ATP), a volunteer-based organisation that hosts family-friendly tree-planting parties. In winter, ATP volunteers will plant a mix of native seedlings along the saline creek line that meanders through the centre of the 40-hectare property. The species mix includes several endemic shrubs and trees which will provide habitat for native wildlife. The average annual rainfall for this area is approximately 500mm. This is significantly higher than other areas of the Wheatbelt and care must be taken with species selection to avoid mortality from waterlogging and salinity.

Canna, WA

Badimaya Country | Scheduled 2022/2023 | 300 ha

This 300-hectare site is part of a larger property owned by the Carbon Farming Foundation in WA’s Mid West region. Following decades of extensive clearing, much of the native flora and fauna in this region is endangered or extinct and land is highly degraded. Due to low annual rainfall and competition from perennial weeds, retaining sufficient moisture in the soil will be one of the key challenges of this project. We will be using an experimental direct seeding method to plant a mix of native species, restoring connectivity and biodiversity within the landscape. The return of native flora and fauna will be assessed using citizen science; the results of which will provide valuable scientific data that will inform other restoration projects in the area.

Warralakin, WA

Kalaamaya Country | Scheduled 2023 | 180 ha

Located directly adjacent to Chiddarcooping Nature Reserve, this ecologically significant site is part of a larger property owned by Bush Blocks Guardians Inc. (a local not-for-profit conservation group). Previously cleared and used for cropping, the planting site is located within a biodiversity hotspot and is home to several threatened flora and fauna species, including Malleefowl. This project aims to restore native vegetation to the area, creating habitat to support a range of woodland species including Dunnarts, Western Yellow Robins, Brushtail Possums and Pink Cockatoos. Later this year, native seed will be collected from the surrounding bush and grown into seedlings at a local nursery. These seedlings will be hand-planted during winter 2023.
