Start a new Christmas Tree tradition, without the pine needle mess

Do something different this Christmas. Why chop down a pine tree to decorate, then die in a couple of weeks – start a new tradition and plant native trees with Greenfleet instead!

Environmental charity Greenfleet plants native forests around Australia to help fight climate change, restore habitat for native wildlife, improve soil and water quality, and much more.

Greenfleet has a range of gifts to give your loved ones a greener festive season, including:

Vehicle Offset Gift Certificate
For $60*, Greenfleet will plant 17 Australian native trees as part of a permanent forest to help offset the greenhouse gas emissions that the recipient's car produces in one year. You’ll both get a great feeling knowing that your gift is helping the environment.

Plant a Forest – pre-paid VISA Gift Card
If you want to give someone a little spending money to go with their trees, you can try a ‘Plant a Forest’ Universal Gift Card. Each $100** gift card gives $50 to Greenfleet to plant 15 native trees and $50 spending money to your gift recipient.

As a registered environmental charity, Greenfleet exists to make a difference, not a profit. Since 1997, Greenfleet has planted more than 7 million trees to restore biodiverse forests around Australia. We encourage organisations and individuals to AVOID and REDUCE greenhouse gas emissions and then OFFSET any remaining emissions by planting native forests.
Greenfleet’s forests take carbon from the atmosphere to tackle climate change, but they also do much more.
We plant a variety of native trees in permanent forests that help to reduce salinity and soil erosion, provide essential habitat for native wildlife, and much more.
Greenfleet are well recognised for their ongoing commitment to revegetating Australian forests, being named finalists in the Biodiversity category (2010 & 2011) and the Meeting the Greenhouse Challenge category (2008) of the UNAA World Environment Day Awards, and the Land and Biodiversity category (2010) of the Banksia Awards.
