Before and After: Humes Crossing, NSW

Before and After: Humes Crossing, NSW

Humes Crossing is one of three forests that Greenfleet helped revegetate in the Kosciuszko National Park in NSW. Depot, Log Bridge and Humes Crossing make more than 250ha that have been revegetated in the area. Now, over 300,000 trees are growing across these three sites.

At Humes Crossing alone, more than 70,000 native trees were planted between 2008 and 2011. These trees are now doing well and the photos speak for themselves - what a transformation!

As well as increasing the biodiversity in the area these trees are creating vital habitat for native wildlife. This includes kangaroos, koalas and a number of native bird species. You can read more about the birds found in this area here.

Over their lifetime, these trees will also capture more than 30,000 tonnes of carbon (CO2-e). That's similar to the annual emissions of about 7,000 medium sized cars!

You can see the incredible difference below.
