We plant trees in accordance with best practice natural resource management principles. When we fund planting activities we ensure that site selection has been based on the best available scientific information. This includes consideration of where the species selected will grow effectively, what species should be planted at each site and what organisms will use the new habitat for shelter, breeding or feeding.
Species selection is a very important component of revegetation. We work with experts to source seedlings that are grown from seeds collected in the locality of the planting.
We ensure that our sites are actively managed using an adaptive management approach and that the success of each project is monitored appropriately.
To ensure that we achieve the best environmental outcomes, we try to ensure that our habitat enhancing projects are linked to other projects and that our plantings add value to the outcomes of other biodiversity outcomes.
