Congratulations for 25 Years of TreeProject - from a volunteer
“Dear De and wonderful staff of Tree Project”
“Congratulations on that fantastic record of providing trees to the land and satisfaction to the growers for twenty five years. You have contributed in a very important way to the healing of the damaged earth and to her people, who are also in pain.”
“I have been growing for 17 years and it has done wonders for me to watch the seedlings grow, and to see the progress of the trees I helped plant 12 years back. I have made friends and I have so much personal satisfaction from knowing that I am making a tiny contribution to the Band-Aid that the damaged earth so desperately needs.”
“Seedling growing is healing for people like me as well as for the earth. –Paul”

TreeProject helps revegetate and repair the environment
A recent report by the Commissioner for Environmental Sustainability sited that native vegetation is being lost on private land in Victoria at a rate of 4,000 hectares per year. We depend on balanced ecosystems for photosynthesis, carbon sequestration, pest prevention, drought mitigation, soil enrichment and flood regulation.
When these ecosystems struggle, we are all in trouble. Loss of vegetation and land degradation are urgent environmental problems. Our forebears observed the same issues over 100 years ago. A Plea for tree planting from the Surveyor – Governor 1906.
TreeProject believes that re-vegetation of our indigenous flora is the primary way Victorians can tackle these major issues in a practical, communal and measurable way.
Supporting landholders to restore degraded land
Tree Project’s underlying philosophy is that repairing our natural resources, including the farmland that produces our food, fibres and other essential items, relies upon the entire community.” TreeProject connects urban and rural communities to work together putting trees back on the land.
Help us get trees in the ground
TreeProject provides opportunities for people to get involved and do something practical for the environment by growing indigenous seedlings in their own backyards. We provide volunteer growers with training, support and growing materials needed to set up a ‘home nursery’ and successfully grow strong healthy seedlings.
Every year Tree Project volunteers contribute more than 48,000 hours. Come and join us. Find out how to grow things ¬– learn about plant propagation, seed collecting and revegetation.
