South Gippsland Landcare Network

Trees for Life

Native animals such as the Strzelecki koala, the Southern Brown Bandicoot and even prickly bitey critters such as the Strzelecki burrowing crayfish need forests to live in. We help and encourage land owners to replace or restore native vegetation.  Planting trees helps our wildlife, keeps rivers clean and erosion free, stores carbon and creates a sustainable environment.

The South Gippsland Landcare Network is a trusted community organisation that works with farmers and other landholders, government agencies and local businesses to achieve natural resource management outcomes.

Why are we collecting funds?

Trees for Life is a community based project to increase habitat and the ecological resilience of the South Gippsland landscape so native animals have a home, and planted wildlife corridors (we call them biolinks) so they can safely move around.

On ground works are the key component of the work we do. Active management of our remnants and revegetation areas are key to the long term ecological resilience of the landscape and ultimately the protection of our native species. 

How will the money we raise be used?

100% of donated money is used to fund tree planting programs.

  • Revegetation work to repair and restore the treed landscape
  • Developing and planting wildlife corridors, linking areas of fragmented bushland
  • Fencing off and replanting riparian areas to rehabilitate waterways and improve water quality, both in the river or stream and the inlets they flow into.
  • Education programs that empower landholders to understand their responsibilities, identify threats and developing solutions to pest plant and animal control, revegetation and land use.

Donors are welcome to contact the Network and get involved in community tree plantings.
