Bio-diverse Native Tree Planting
Helping to revegetate and protect Australia's natural landscape
Carbon Neutral leads biodiverse conservation plantings, using carefully selected native species to create habitats that are more resilient to Australia’s climate and support natural ecosystems and wildlife.
Carbon Neutral trees help make a difference now and for future generations.
Trees Help To...Reduce soil erosion Combat salinity Provide wind breaks Improve biodiversity Provide habitat for native animals Sequester carbon dioxide
Species SelectedSpecies are selected according to soil type and local climate and include a range of native trees, shrubs and understory. In most cases 10-40 different species will be established through direct seeding and /or planting seedlings. Seedlings are raised by regional accredited nurseries near the planting sites and/ or seed collected from near the site.
Planting SitesAll plantings are designed to improve and protect the rural environment. Carbon Neutral has a policy of only planting on unproductive farmland. Planting sites are chosen in consultation with enthusiastic landowners.
Nurture and MonitoringCarbon Neutral works with Land Conservation District Committies, Landcare Officers, Regional Catchment Councils and NRM officers. Weed and pest control, fire prevention, protection from livestock, monitoring, mapping and infill planting, where appropriate, are all part of a comprehensive site management plan undertaken by Carbon Neutral and its contractors.
