This planting has been funded by the Bushfire appeal collaboration between Rainforest 4 Foundation and Reforest Now and HalfCut.

The Bushfire Appeal launched by Rainforest 4 has been raising money to plant trees after the fires. With parts of the subtropical rainforest in NSW having been burnt in the fires, we are working to increase our efforts to plant trees and strengthen the resilience of the rainforest of the region. With a changing climate and natural disasters like fires becoming more frequent, the work we do now can have a huge impact in the future.

Thank you to everyone who donated through the Bushfire Appeal. Please make a donation to keep our project growing.

In northern NSW the rain is here and the bushfires are out! Now let’s plant these trees - The Mt Nardi bushfires burnt 5,500 hectares including habitat for endangered wildlife inland from Byron Bay. We are planting of 100,000 rainforest trees and need your help. Every $10 donated will establish one tree, this includes site preparation, planting, and ongoing maintenance for three years to ensure they survive.

In Australia many ecosystems have evolved with fire and eucalypts, banksias and acacias will regenerate naturally and rapidly. Rainforests are ecosystems that are poorly adapted to fires and as 99% of lowland subtropical rainforest has been cleared in the past, they need help to recover. We will be planting in areas where natural regeneration is not likely. Please donate now

In southeast Australia, the threat from fires continues, however, the fires in northern NSW occurred in November and December. In this subtropical climate, we have a wet season that has arrived. The rain has extinguished the fires and its now the ideal time to plant rainforest trees.

Unprecedented bushfires occurred in Northern NSW inland from Byron Bay in November and December 2019 and were named the Mt Nardi fires. In extreme conditions, the fire burnt the edge of the rainforest and in some place’s rainforest itself. Now that the fires have been extinguished and rain has come we are ready for recovery actions. Our established rainforest restoration projects will re-establish habitat for endangered wildlife at Upper Coopers Creek, inland from Byron Bay and on cleared land nearby. We are planting rainforest trees now and need your support to continue. See our project page for more information

Thank you to our project partners Reforest Now and HalfCut for their efforts in organising and funding this event.
