Trees For Life responds to COVID-19

A message from our CEO

The events and challenges of 2020 have been unprecedented. Fortunately, at Trees For Life we’re used to meeting challenges head-on, and our strong community and resourceful staff are working together to ensure we continue activities as much as possible, at the same time keeping everyone safe and playing our part in containing COVID-19.

We continue to nurture thousands of seedlings - in our nursery and by volunteer growers in backyards across the state - so we can lend much needed support to people living on the land; many of whom are recovering from the recent bushfires.

Now more than ever, we’re being reminded what is really important. The people we love, helping each other, having a safe haven and a healthy environment. At Trees For Life we’ll continue to work together - hopefully and passionately - to protect and restore life across our magnificent state.

Stay well and safely connected – with each other, with us and with nature.
