Donate a tree

$5.00 AUD
Approx $3.34 USD

Description:

When you adopt a tree with Tamworth Regional Landcare Association (TRLA) we plant a tree in local areas that are being restored and cared for by local Landcare groups.

We select native species endemic to our region that support natural ecosystems and wildlife, creating habitats that are more resilient to Australia’s climate. We collect the seed locally, propagate it locally and plant it locally with support of Landcare volunteers and groups from across the region. Our Community Nursery volunteers tend to your donation until a local Landcare group is ready to plant your tree in its new home.

Trees can help sequester carbon and thereby reduce the impact of man-made CO2 emissions. Locally, trees provide habitat for wildlife, food for people and animals, and stabilise the soil. A gift of a tree lasts for generations.

$5 will donate one native tree or shrub to a local Landcare project and will contribute to the management and monitoring of our planting projects.

You can help TRLA support the tree planting activities being carried out by Landcare groups. You can choose how many trees to plant and in turn you will be the recipient of the tree-planting certificate. All certificates will be delivered electronically.

Your trees will be planted within the Tamworth region by local volunteers doing their bit for the environment.

For more information on the program contact Paul Moxon 0425 337 475.

Please note, when you are purchasing trees through our donation program, you are making a donation to our local Landcare network and the trees will be donated to a local group for an environmental project. You will not receive a tree.

Caring for a native garden in winter

Sure is cold down here at the minute in Willow Tree!   

Having moved to a “Plantswomans” garden with a LOT of native plants, I thought I better do a bit of research and see if there were any essential tasks I need to keep in mind.  Luckily, it seems pretty simple… there are a few photos below, and I take NO credit for the garden! 

Our members often say that when you become part of Landcare, you’re not just joining a group, you’re becoming part of a family. The concept is so compatible with Australian culture it’s hard not to get involved! By becoming a TRLA member, you’ll be supporting our work, learning new skills, becoming part of the solution, and helping to make a difference for the future.
