Christmas Trees for Bushfire Recovery:
Give the gift of planting and maintaining a tree this Christmas for just $10

This Christmas, the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife (FNPW), the charity partner of Australia’s National Parks, is calling for all Aussies to support its mission of planting one million trees in bushfire affected areas around Australia.

Earlier this month, FNPW, in conjunction with international non-profit, One Tree Planted and French beauty brand, L’OCCITANE launched three bushfire recovery nurseries in NSW, ACT and SA to start the planting of native trees which will help recover habitats for critically affected species, including the Koala and Glossy Black Cockatoo.

They are calling for all Aussies to help by:

  • Giving the gift of a tree to family, friends and colleagues which will be planted in bushfire affected areas around Australia. To plant and maintain one tree costs $10.
  • Forego buying a traditional Christmas tree and instead, donate towards planting a family of trees to be grown in their forever Aussie homes. It might not be in your lounge-room, but these trees will become your legacy and live for generations to come!

FNPW awarded one of three initial Bushfire Recovery Nursery grants to Greening Australia's Community Nursery, located in Aranda, ACT.

This came as part of the first stage of FNPW's mission to plant 1 million trees in Bushfire Recovery Nurseries over the next five years, in partnership with global non-profit, One Tree Planted and French beauty brand, L’OCCITANE.

The grant awarded to Greening Australia will extend the capacity of its current nursery by 40,000 trees, resulting in 160,000 trees. This will be a major step in supporting the recovery of the South Coast to Gippsland Corridor, with funding also allocated towards upgrades to the irrigation system, nursery benches and trolleys, as well as essential supplies such as potting mix, trays and pots.
