The problem in this case is that the +TreeForce Cairns is in fact a community, but has an individual profile.  These are the differences between individual profiles and business pages:

Think you'll have to personalize the existing page, with your individual name, and create a business page for TreeForce Cairns.

Don't think there is a way to convert from profile to page ...

Dear all.
Good news = Your still getting your trees.
Bad news = Unfortunatley we made an error when creating our G+ profile and set it to a personal account instead of a page. So unfortunatley google has deleted our personal page. So if it is not too much trouble would you mind adding TreeForce..the page...? so we can keep you updated on the progress of your little photosynthetic babies.

Thankyou so much for your understanding

Introduced mice and rats are common prey of house cats in urban and suburban environments. In undisturbed environments adjoining new residential developments, predation by house cats have a substantial impact on  abundant, patchily distributed populations of native fauna, particularly mammals.  According to study, well fed domesticated cats kill for fun and not for survival.  One in three cats kill prey and average about two kills per week.  Most domestic cats don't eat their prey and they leave it behind.

Dear friends. TreeForce is switching to a "page" (as opposed to a personal account). Pages can't add people until people add the page...so if you are still interested in following treeforce, please add TreeeForce page (shared below) to your ciricles.
Thankyou so much for your patience.

TreeForce Style
1) Layout the rope...35 meters long.
2) Mark every 1.5 meters with pink spray paint (not just cos its pretty, but becasue it stands out).
3) The pick dots is where we drill
4) TreeForce weaponary.....The Auger! These babies kick and slap!

Site Layout
5th of October.
Setting out the site for the upcoming treeplanting on 20th October. We space the trees 1.5 x 1.5 m and we are planting 25 rows * 26 colmns = 650 trees. You can see some of the degraded, exotic, vine infested rainforest in the background...Its poor quality is due to the Edge Effect where light and heat penetrates through the perimeter of the forest and allows weeds to grow and nasty vines to grow.
As your trees grow they will link up these remenant fragments (which are effectivly islands) and allow geneflow between them.
Within about 30 years, our tree plantings will look like natural rainforest.
 
Anyway I'm just posting this so you can all see we are busy getting ready for the big day.
We have had about 5cm of rain over the last couple of weeks, which is SENSATIONAL news for all our little green photosynthetic friends.

Remember if you want a rainforest tree tagged with your name, please reshare the linked post, publicly.

Introduction
Community group focused on revegetation, rehabilitation of the rainforests of our region. Working hard to make a measurable and significant difference.
We operate in the beautiful, tropical Cairns region of Far-North Queensland, Australia.

 Every second sunday, a samll army of volunteers spends two hours, planting, mulching and watering trees.

On average we plant around 500 local, native trees every month. these trees will form the framework of future forests and provide food and habitat for some of Australia's critically endangered secies such as the Cassowary and Tree Kangaroos.

If you are ever passing trough Cairns, why not come and plant some trees with us. Great fun, great way to de-stress and you will meet lots of friendly locals while you are there.
Bragging rights
Been planting around 500 trees every month since 1992. Tropical rainforests stored 250 tonnes Carbon per hectare (t C ha), Based on this figure the forests we planted will sequester about 10,000 t C !
