Today, the Turnbull Government is taking another step closer to achieving our goal of planting 20 million trees by 2020 with a further $6 million now available for community tree planting projects.

Under our 20 Million Trees Program, the Turnbull Government will invest $70 million to plant 20 million trees by 2020.  

Community groups, organisations or individuals can now apply for grants between $20,000 and $100,000 for tree planting projects that will put back threatened bushland and support threatened species. 

Priority will be given to projects that target nationally-listed Threatened Ecological Communities.  

Under previous 20 Million Trees funding rounds, Landcare groups and community projects across Australia have planted three million trees. With 13.4 million trees already contracted for planting, today’s announcement will ensure that the 20 million trees election commitment target is met.

The 20 Million Trees Grant Guidelines: Round Three are also now available and applications close on 15 August 2017.

The 20 Million Trees initiative is an important part of the Turnbull Government’s National Landcare Program.
