Men of the Trees – Western Australia

GP: This is an organisation we have admired for many a year … and they are still going strong

Their objectives:-

  • Provide support to the community so they can become directly involved in seed collecting,
  • Seed propagation, re-vegetation of the land and aftercare
  • Provide native tree and seedlings to the community
  • Share information with as wide a cross section of society as possible
  • Ensure the Society manages its affairs with integrity

Planting Trees, Reducing Greenhouse Gases, Fighting Salinity

Highlighting a couple of programs

Million Trees Program
Over 90 schools in WA are involved in this valuable program. Children learn about the value of Western Australian native trees in a practical, hands-on environment. Their aim is to teach children about the joy of propagating and nurturing seedlings in their own school nurseries, before planting them in degraded urban and rural locations. The ultimate goal? One million trees planted in one season! Awesome!  

Children’s Forest
The Men of the Trees, will celebrate the birth of your child by planting a grove of trees. The Children’s Forest gives the child an investment in the environment – seeing them grow together helps each other face the challenges of the future. Certificates are issued for every child contributing to the Children’s Forest.

GP: Isn’t The Children’s Forest a great idea!
