FOREST UPDATE // In August 2016, we partnered with Peter & Bill Wood to revegetate their property along the Great Ocean Road, thus kick-starting our Great Ocean Road Restoration Project, supported by Europcar Australia.

“Our vision is to convert this ‘un-farmable’ land back to native forest, blending into the existing forest that surrounds much of the property," the Wood brothers explained.

A couple of weeks ago, we went back to the planting site to check on the growth of our trees, and we were very pleased with the results so far! Greenfleet's Eoghan commented: “I conducted a monitoring survey across 22 plots, randomly selected across the site. The results were great with an average stocking rate of 700 stems per hectare. Some of the Eucalypts and Blackwoods are already one metre tall!”

Thank-you from Greenfleet's chair and our team for an amazing year. Our achievements wouldn't be possible without the thousands of people and organisations who offset their carbon emissions with us. Thank you! We look forward to an even bigger year in 2017!

In an Australian first, the Victorian Government has provided +Greenfleet with the carbon rights on two parcels of Crown Land in outer Melbourne, where we planted native trees to sequester carbon and protect biodiversity.

“This opens the potential for Greenfleet to scale up support for ecosystem restoration across public lands in Victoria,” Greenfleet CEO Wayne Wescott said. “As public-sector budgets are increasingly challenged, this model can provide critical funding for public-land restoration. There are currently billions of dollars available in carbon markets. These funds can now potentially be accessed to revegetate large tracts of land and even help establish new national parks.”

Victorian Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio, staff from Parks Victoria and DELWP joined us for a visit of one of the planting sites in the Lysterfield National Park last week.

Wondering what +Greenfleet is all about? This is it: we're connecting people with real #climateaction. We've planted more than 8.7 million native trees since 1997 and restored over 425 forests in the process. We're committed to offset more than 2.7 million tonnes of CO2-e on behalf of our amazing #GreenfleetSupporters.

And this right there, is what our work looks like on the ground: before Greenfleet versus after Greenfleet!

A lot of hands make light work. The Bowna Waters Reserve revegetation project along Lake Hume in NSW was a joint effort by Greenfleet, Scouts Australia and Goulburn Murray Water. The vast 70-hectare Reserve near Albury, NSW, was first planted by Greenfleet in 2002 as part of the Murray-Darling Rescue project. The aim was to reduce soil salinity and erosion throughout this important river system.

This fantastic #beforeandafter photo shows what trees can create over time and the amazing impact carbon offset donations have on our landscape. The sheer scale of land Greenfleet and the partnering bodies revegetated has created a pretty spectacular forest! Over the years, the trees have spread far and wide adding depth to the great canopy coverage that has grown this past decade.

Greenfleet and Europcar NZ are teaming up to restore native vegetation and protect biodiversity in New Zealand.

“Europcar is showing real leadership on this critical global issue and Greenfleet is proud to be working with them. Working together, we can capture carbon emissions from vehicle use, restore precious biodiverse forests and preserve the natural landscape for future visitors to enjoy,” Greenfleet CEO Wayne Wescott said.

The forest we planted in Atiu Creek, NZ, last year is taking shape. this is what our planting site looked like during our visit last month!

Back in 2015, this project was our inaugural tree planting in New Zealand and it now looks well on its way to become a stunning forest!

As it grows, the native forest we planted at 'Wurneet Laang Laang', our property in Gippsland, Vic, is sequestering carbon dioxide fromt he atmosphere. In fact, it is estimated to capture 84,000 tonnes of CO2-e over the next 100 years!
This reforestation project is funded by our #GreenfleetSupporters who offset their carbon emissions with us. It is a great example of how biodiverse carbon offsets are fighting climate change while delivering many environmental co-benefits!
Drum roll please… Welcome to Wurneet Laang Laang; the first Greenfleet owned property in Victoria! Nestled in the hills of South Gippsland just 1.5 hours from Melbourne, another carbon sequestering, native forest is taking shape. In June this year, Greenfleet planted 50,000 native seedlings on the 66-hectare site. The property was named ‘Wurneet Laang Laang’, meaning stony creek/river in the Boon Wurrung language. The Boon Wurrung people or t...

Story
Tagline
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
