Our people are at the heart of all we do. We revegetate and protect bushland, farmland and urban terrain. With local knowledge, we raise awareness about native plants and animals. And with experience we empower people to take action and connect with their landscape.
We work with you. We create visible change. We are South Australian.
By volunteering with Trees For Life you join a community of like-minded people. From growing seedlings to caring for bushland and sharing knowledge, you’ll have a chance to create visible results for the land you love.

Find one-off or regular bushcare opportunities on one of our 300 bushland sites. Discover and help protect some of our state’s most threatened species and habitats. Spend time outdoors with other people and connect with nature. Adopt your own Bush For Life site, attend a workshop or join a Bush Action Team and visit different sites across the state.

One of our longest-running programs connects volunteer growers with landholders. Every year, landholders can order subsidised native tubestock through the Tree Scheme. You grow these native seedlings in your own backyard for them, with access to free training workshops and support from us, to help them revegetate. Learn more about becoming a volunteer grower.
Help protect our biodiversity by collecting seed. Every year, our volunteer collect and process native seeds for use by our Tree Scheme and Direct Seeding programs. Learn more about seed collection workshops here.
