Plant a Milestone Forest

Growing a forest to mark special events

In today’s world, many people are looking to celebrate important events in a meaningful and sustainable way. 

Greenfleet offers a unique way to not only plant a tree, but grow a native forest to commemorate special occasions. The establishment of a ‘Milestone Forest’ serves to make a significant impact towards protecting our environment, restoring biodiverse ecosystems and re-connecting habitat for wildlife, including many endangered species.  The forest you establish will be legally protected for 100 years allowing it to grow into a self-sustaining ecosystem that will thrive beyond this century. 

With a Milestone Forest, we can plant a native forest to help you pay tribute to life’s special moments. Greenfleet supporters have established Milestone Forests for a variety of heartfelt reasons such as wedding gift registries, birthday presents, in memory of a loved one or celebrating new life. 

A Milestone Forest will grow into a thriving, resilient ecosystem that is protected for 100 years. It is a beautiful and meaningful way to honour any person or milestone.

“In a forest of a hundred thousand trees, no two leaves are alike. And no two journeys along the same path are alike.” - Paulo Coelho

Where your forest will be planted

With Milestone Forests, Greenfleet has celebrated more than 20 significant moments in the lives of our supporters which has helped revegetate many hectares of land on our site called Ngulambarra in Central Victoria.

This property is located on the lands of the Dja Dja Wurrung people and forms part of the Wychitella Biolink. By restoring this previously cleared landscape with native trees and grasses we are creating vegetation links and building habitat for many of the local wildlife species. Some of the wildlife known to the area are Lace Monitors, Quolls, the Vulnerable Mallee Fowl, and many other native bird species.

Greenfleet’s Revegetation Team monitors the growth of the forest as well as the return of wildlife to the area. Updates on how a supporter’s forest is growing are communicated to them or their families each year marking the anniversary of their special event.

Your donation will continue the critical work being completed on this property and help you leave a long lasting legacy.


 

Baby Clancy's forest

In 2022, parents Belinda and Emily celebrated the birth of their son Clancy by establishing a Milestone Forest in his name. Belinda said, “It is a wonderful way for our child to remember that these trees are growing alongside them.” They were kind enough to share this photo of baby Clancy, who is a nature lover already!

As Clancy celebrates his birthday in the following years, he will receive communications from Greenfleet commemorating the anniversary of the sustainable native forest that is growing along with him.

How you can grow a Milestone Forest

A Milestone Forest offers an opportunity to celebrate life events in an everlasting and sustainable way that provides long-lasting ecological benefits to Australian landscapes and wildlife. 

When you invest in a Milestone Forest, you can choose how much land you would like to restore. From $2,000, you will revegetate 0.1 hectares of land which is the size of 5 tennis courts. You will receive a certificate to recognise your contribution and we will keep you updated on the progress of the native forest as it grows.
