Planning your order
Landholders need to plan what, where and when to plant, and do any necessary site preparation. This may include weed control, fencing and ripping. We advise landholders to contact their local landcare group, for site specific advice.
TreeProject trains volunteers to propagate the native and endemic seed that you order. These volunteers then look after these seedlings for 6 months in order to provide you with healthy 20-30cm tube stock to go on-site.
To make it easier for our volunteers we have made a list of species that we do not grow based on difficulty or that the species are Winter/Autumn Germinating.

Ribbons of Green Project
The Ribbons of Green program was developed to encourage the use of indigenous plants and to help offset carbon emissions caused by Shire of Yarra Rangers fleet. The Shire of Yarra Ranges provide free plants each year to private landowners, schools and community groups looking to create bush habitats.
If you qualify for this project, the Shire of Yarra Ranges will not only pay for seedlings, tree guards and weed mats, they will come out to your site and asses your planting needs. Then choose TreeProject to be the seedling supplier and TreeProject will arrange cooperate staff to plant the seedlings for you. It's a fantastic opportunity to get your revegetation project completed with all the help you need.
For more information go to Yarra Ranges Ribbons of Green site.
Before you Order
Landholders need to identify the bioregion of your planting site to determine the species indigenous to the area before ordering.
Bioregions are a landscape-scale approach to classifying the environment using a range of attributes such as climate, geomorphology, geology, soils and vegetation. There are 28 bioregions identified in Victoria. Within each bioregion are a number of EVCs.
There are 2 steps to getting your list of indigenous species for your planting site.
1. Identify the Bioregion of the planting area using the DEPI interactive map.
a. This following document will describe how to use the interctive biodiversity map.
We acknowledge and thank the Helen Macpherson Smith Trust for the funding provided for the development of this document
2. Download EVC (Ecological Vegetation Class) lists to identify the appropriate species - following this link once you have identified the EVC for your area to get the EVC list - www.treeproject.org.au/LiteratureRetrieve.aspx?ID=173356
Additional Regional EVC Maps
(a) Yarra Ranges
Species from the Yarra ranges can be identified from the Yarra Ranges Local Plan Communities.
(b) Goulburn Broken CMA
Species from Goulburn Broken COMA can be identified from the Revegitation Guide.
Advice on windbreaks is available from this Practical Information Note.
