How can I apply for trees to plant under the One Million Trees program?
There are two ways to access trees through One Million Trees – the Resident Voucher program and Landowner program.
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. (Note: 2,000 vouchers are part of the first allotment of the 2021 program).
The Landowner Program will allow property owners with sizeable landholdings to nominate land within the Bundaberg Regional Council area on which trees can be planted. Email us to be part of the Mailing List so we can notify you when this program opens: email@example.com.

Any landowner can plant the trees on their own land.
