Million Trees Program

The Scenic Rim Million Trees Program is Council's flagship environmental program designed with the objective of planting one million trees by 2024. The program seeks to achieve this outcome through the delivery of several initiatives aimed at providing trees to residents, community groups, rural land holders and schools. The Scenic Rim Million Trees Program plans to address issues of biodiversity loss while achieving sustainable land practices, waterway restoration and beautification of the region. The specific initiatives are listed below;

  • Rural Trees initiative - providing trees to rural land holders
  • Habitat Trees Initiative - providing trees to participants of Council's Habitat Protection Program
  • Community Trees Initiative - providing trees to community groups, social clubs, sporting associations and schools to help vegetate their land and Council parks and reserves

Habitat Protection Program

Scenic Rim Regional Council recognises the significant contribution by landowners to the conservation and enhancement of the region's natural resources. Council is seeking to develop partnerships with landowners to further enhance positive natural resource management outcomes in the region.

The Habitat Protection Program provides support to property owners to help conserve the environment. The program plays a crucial role in creating better land management partnerships between Council, landowners and the community, and enhances the protection of the region's unique fauna and flora.
