Donate a tree in your name or in the name of someone who deserves recognition.
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” – Chinese Proverb
  • Next time you would like to say: “Thank you,” give a gift that:
  • Is more memorable than a bottle of wine
  • Will live longer than a bunch of flowers
  • Is healthier than a box of chocolates
  • $20 will see a native Australian tree planted by Landcare in your name or in the name of a recipient. Some time later, feel free to visit your tree and give it a hug!
GroTrees were first planted at Bingara in 2007, then Teralba and now at Lithgow (2019)
