Why?

Greening Australia’s Future Carbon program helps to conserve natural habitats by making patches of vegetation larger and more connected. This makes them more resilient to climate change, but also useful as stepping stones for species to move and adapt.

Future Carbon plantings are therefore a key element of large-scale initiatives.

Communities around Australia benefit from Future Carbon projects by:

  • participating in plantings;
  • learning new skills; and
  • taking an active role in the ongoing conservation of their local environments.
The benefits of integrating trees into agricultural landscapes are well known by both farmers and scientists. Follow the links below for more detail on these benefits.
