Biodiversity

Greenfleet is unique in its approach to native reforestation. We believe passionately in protecting and enhancing our biodiversity and have embedded this approach in our reforestation practice.

Greenfleet plants multi-species, native forests across Australia and New Zealand. Across our forests, we have planted over 400 different plant species which have been selected because they are indigenous to the local area.

Greenfleet plants with purpose. Our forests are suited to the local environment, improve soil and water quality, and provide critical habitat for native wildlife, including many endangered species.

In Australia, biodiversity is threatened by climate change, deforestation, fragmentation of habitat, invasive species, changes to water flow and aquatic environments, and unsustainable use of natural resources.

More than 1,800 animal and plant species as well as ecological communities (including forests, woodlands and wetlands) are currently facing extinction. Many of these species are endemic to Australia, which means they are found nowhere else in the world. You can learn more about the importance of biodiversity here

Our biodiversity efforts

At Greenfleet, we are taking practical action now to address this extinction crisis.

All our reforestation projects take into consideration the biodiversity values of the area and its unique floral and fauna heritage.
