Our Tree Planting Contribution
By Charlie Nelson
In addition to planting and maintaining trees on our property in Australia
we contribute towards tree planting in parts of the world where forests
have been decimated or are under threat.
In 2013 so far, donations included:
$100 to Rainforest Rescue
to plant and nurture four trees in the Daintree rainforest.
£150 to Population Matters,
a charity whose vision is of a population size enabling decent living
standards and environmental sustainability.
£50 to International Planned Parenthood Federation Worldwide (www.ippf.org)
for their family planning appeal.
In 2012, donations included:
$250 to Greenfleet (www.greenfleet.com.au),
which plants native trees in many Australian locations to offset carbon
emissions from transport. This also reduces soil salinity and
provides habitat for native animals.
$100 to Nature Conservancy (www.nature.org)
to plant 100 trees in Brazil.
50 rainforest trees planted to restore orangutan habitat in degraded areas
of the Leuser forests in Northern Sumatra (Sumatran
$25 donation to the Tanjung Puting national park in Kalimantan on our 2012
planting target for Australia
