The Greenfleet team is joining Western Port Seagrass Partnership for a mangrove planting day on the coast near Lang Lang, Vic. Let's just say it is a muddier exercise than our usual tree planting days...

How beautiful is our 10-year old native forest located in Baxters Wetland, in South Gippsland, Victoria? ‪#‎GreenfleetForest‬

The Baxters Wetland Reserve is owned and managed by Parks Victoria. Since 2005 Greenfleet has undertaken annual plantings on this site for six years. The resulting forest is providing much-needed habitat for native fauna of the area including swamp antechinus, swamp wallaby, common brushtail possum, ringtail possum and echidna.

18ha of the reserve were revegetated with over 36,000 native trees planted on behalf of our individual and business supporters.
Visit www.greenfleet.com.au to learn more about our program and to help plant more native forests around Australia.

Exciting news: Greenfleet has teamed up with The Nature Conservancy and Deakin University to explore Blue Carbon and investigate how Australia can support projects that sequester carbon in coastal vegetation.

Ever wondered what a Greenfleet forest looks like from space? This is it! Just another example of the impact Greenfleet supporters have on the ground.

About 10,000 native trees were planted on this property in Highland Valley, SA in 2003. 12 years later, the forest is growing very healthily and covering much of the land now.

Since 1997, Greenfleet has restored more than 400 native forests around the country thanks to donations from thousands of Australians and organisations. It's fantastic to be able to share the visual difference donations make by transforming landscapes back to their natural state.

The native forest we planted on Judith's property in NSW transformed the farm from weeds to wilderness.

In our books, every day is a day worth celebrating forests and their vital importance in our lives. Life on Earth is made possible and sustainable thanks to trees and forests. Can you help plant more ‪#‎forests‬?

Check out these "beast guards"! We installed them to protect saplings from deers who like to rub their antlers on the trunk of the young trees we planted in 2012 near Forster North, Vic.
This young native forest has been quite impacted by browsing and rubbing, but it looks like these extra strong guards might just do the trick!

"Forests hold carbon in their vegetation and soils like a natural storage facility. They also provide a home for wildlife, like this cute fella below. So, restoring forests in areas which have been cleared in the past is good for the climate AND good for biodiversity," writes our friends at CSIRO.

Now - what if I told you that YOU have the power to take tangible, practical action for the climate and for biodiversity by simply offsetting your car's emissions with Greenfleet for less than $1.50 a week...

Fantastic article about Warrigal, an aged care provider who have been offsetting with Greenfleet for over 5 years, taking significant steps to minimise their environmental footprint.

A must read to understand why investing in sustainability has some surprising benefits!

Can you see the Greenfleet native forest slowly filling in Lysterfield National Park on these progressive shots? The difference in just 4 years is very impressive!

Greenfleet is a not-for-profit organisation connecting people with real climate action.
Introduction
Greenfleet exists to make a difference, not a profit

Greenfleet is Australia's most respected source of biodiverse carbon offsets.

As an environmental not-for-profit organisation, our mission is to protect our climate by restoring our forests. We plant Australian native forests to offset carbon emissions on behalf of thousands of individuals, businesses, NGOs, councils and universities.

Since 1997, Greenfleet has planted over 8.5 million native trees in more than 400 biodiverse forests around Australia.

Our philosophy for tackling climate change involves three key phases:

  1. Avoid creating emissions wherever possible
  2. Reduce the rate at which you do create emissions
  3. Offset any emissions created by recapturing CO2 from the atmosphere
Donate to Greenfleet today!
