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 will allow property owners with landholdings within the Bundaberg Regional Council area to nominate land on which trees can be planted. 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.

    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 8 months 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
