One Million Trees Bundaberg region

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Bundaberg Regional Council’s vision of planting one million thriving trees in the Bundaberg region by the end of 2024 is well underway.

Departments across Council are working to deliver on the one million trees goal; however support from the whole region is needed.

Residents, businesses, schools, not-for-profit organisations and all levels of government are also working together to achieve the goal for our region.

Council is rolling out two new programs in 2021 and invites the community to be involved in the One Million Trees Bundaberg Project by participating in these.

Resident Voucher Program

In 2020 Council ran a trial Resident Voucher program, making 250 vouchers available for residents across the Bundaberg Region (one voucher being good for two free seedlings). The program was fully subscribed in just three days, with strong support from across the entire region.

In response to the strong demand, the 2021 Resident Voucher program is now open. If you live in the Bundaberg region you can apply for a voucher for two free trees from Bundaberg Landcare (open 9am to 4pm Wednesdays to Fridays).

Click the link here to get your voucher…and get planting. (Note: 2,000 vouchers are part of the first allotment of the 2021 program).

Landowner Program

The Landowner Program allows property owners with landholdings within the Bundaberg Regional Council area to apply for up to 250 trees for their property. Please click here for more details and to complete an Expression of Interest to participate in this program.


How do I count the trees that I (or my organisation) plants?

For residents or organisations that are already planting trees and wish to count them in the overall total, click here to provide brief details about the trees you’ve planted.

If you would like more information about One Million Trees Bundaberg or give us your ideas on where trees can be planted, please email onemilliontrees@bundaberg.qld.gov.au.

Alternatively, continue to visit this website to find out more about the programs and activities to be launched in the near future and sign up for newsletters.

We look forward to your involvement and helping our region to deliver our goal of one million trees.

    Could an avenue of trees be planted along Causeway Drive along the walking/cycle track. This track becomes very unpleasant in the middle of the day in summer as it becomes so hot. Trees would add so much to this well used area.

    Thanks for your suggestion Noela. Council will review your idea.

    I live at the end of Crofton st near West state school. I would dearly love some trees to be planted around the power station to screen it from view and to also create a nice area to walk through between the school and the power station. Obviously the trees would need to be chosen carefully and placed where they wouldn't interfer with the workers accessing the powerplant. More trees around the footpaths in this area would also be great.

    Thanks so much for you suggestion. The One Million Trees team will review your proposal. Thanks again for your interest in One Million Trees.

    Why dont you plant more trees??? We clearly need more!

    Jessica asked 8 months ago

    Thanks Jessica – that’s exactly what the One Million Trees program is all about. If you’d like two free seedlings, apply here.  If you would like a larger number of trees, you can submit an Expression of Interest for up to 250 trees under the Landowner program here. Please encourage your friends and family to do the same too.

    Many people use the pedestrian/cycle pathway between Mon Repos and Burnett Heads. Can trees be planted either side of this pathway to provide shade for users? As the climate becomes hotter, these trees would provide shade and cool the users. Tree species could be native (cotton woods and paper barks) that would attract insects and birds, and replace the pandanus trees that are dying.

    Richard asked 5 months ago

     

    Thanks for your suggestion. Considering overall program scope, costs, and other factors that may influence pathway planting, the One Million Trees team will investigate the possibility of planting in this area.

    I have a 50 acre block of land beside a Significant Environment Area on Butchers Road, Childers. I understand council is helping landholders to plant trees on their properties. How does this work? At present approx. 15 acres is left for natural regrowth and 35 acres has been cleared for cattle. I am interest in revegetating the 35 acres with trees indigenous to this property - and perhaps an Isis tamarind or 2.

    are the trees native to the region or are they different species for our dry climate?

    Mark asked about 1 year ago

    Mark, when you receive your voucher you'll find a link to the tree species available. It's best to talk to Landcare Bundaberg about the best trees for your property. Here is the link to request your voucher: https://www.ourbundabergregion.com.au/one-million-trees-resident-voucher-program
