One Million Trees Landowner Program

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

The Landowner Program provides another avenue for residents to participate in the One Million Trees Program and help our region achieve the goal of planting one million trees by the end of 2024.

The program allows property owners with landholdings within the Bundaberg Regional Council area to nominate private land on which to plant trees.

Examples of plantings are shelterbelts, wind breaks, riparian revegetation, and remnant vegetation restoration.

How the process works

  1. Interested property owners within the region submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to plant native trees on their property.
  2. Council works with each landowner to agree on the size and scope of the proposed planting. Council staff will work with Landowners to select suitable native tree species for their property, with an agreed plant list provided prior to planting.
  3. Once agreed, Council procures the trees on behalf of the property owner. An indicative species list is available here.
  4. Trees are then collected by the landowner from a location in Bundaberg. Council will provide the location’s address and opening hours once trees are ready for collection.
  5. Property owners are responsible for preparing the site, planting the trees and the ongoing care and maintenance, including watering, of the trees.

General conditions for the Landowner Program

  • Property must be located in the Bundaberg Regional Council area, and have an adequate amount of land for development of trees to maturity.
  • Landowners must be able to undertake land preparation and seedling planting.
  • Landowners must consider requirements such as water availability, condition of soil, and be willing to commit to ongoing care and maintenance of the trees to establishment and into the future.
  • Landowners plan to preserve tree plantings into the long-term future.
  • Tree planting for timber production is ineligible.
