Million Trees Program
|Be a part of planting 1 million trees across the Scenic Rim|
Planting a tree is a simple way to enhance our environment. Planting one million trees however, has the ability to significantly alter the regional landscape, creating real positive environmental change while enhancing our natural resources. Scenic Rim Regional Council has committed itself to an ambitious plan to see one million native trees planted across the region by 2025.

Investing in the Million Trees Program
To assist Council and the community to achieve this one million trees goal we are seeking to establish partnerships with like-minded stakeholder organisations in the public and private sectors which will also benefit from this positive environmental outcome.
RIVER TREES INITIATIVE
Council's River Trees initiative helps rural landholders in the Bremer Catchment in the stewardship of their land by providing native plants to address river stability problems. The program offers up to 1000 trees to rural landholders for projects including stream bank stabilisation, and vegetation buffers. The program allows rural landholders to undertake mass scale plantings to manage issues specific to individual properties as well as receiving advice on achieving conservation outcomes while enhancing productivity. The River Trees Initiative is not limited to a minimum property size.
