Greening Australia - 20 Million Trees project - looking for >50ha sites

Greening Australia is submitting a national proposal for 20 million trees: Large-scale native tree planting program (Federal Government) due for submission on 6th Feb!!!

  • The Government is seeking delivery of up to 5 million trees across Australia and for our region (NSW) it works out at around 1.3+ million trees.
  • This equates to approx. 1750ha of land to be revegetated through tube stock and direct seeding (with most expected to be delivered by direct seeding).
  • GA would like to deliver via a package of options in partnership with landholders. As landholder incentives programs are expensive (per tree) due to fencing and other costs, and in order to continue to fund this type of work (and to achieve the project targets) the majority of revegetation will need to occur on large sites (50+ha).

So what we would like from landholders who are happy to partner with us in the proposal is:

·         Identification of land  (preferably >50ha)  that they would be happy to put under trees and leave for a minimum of 5 years to include in the tender submission that you would like to partner with GA on (over the next 3 years). Note that a cluster of sites in one area can constitute one site.

·         Proportion of those hectares suitable for direct seeding i.e. Possible to drive a direct seeder across.

·         A commitment by the landholders to take on long term maintenance of the site (weeding, watering if necessary etc.).

If you are interested, or know anyone who might be, please let me know and we can go from there.

Many thanks, Lesley Peden, Kosciuszko to Coast (K2C) Partnership Facilitator, Email: facilitator@k2c.org.au,Ph: 0400 806 089
