Growing a forest to mark a special event

If you are looking to celebrate an important life event in a meaningful and sustainable way, Greenfleet offers a unique way to grow a native forest and commemorate special occasions.

The establishment of a ‘Milestone Forest’ will make a significant impact towards protecting our environment. Your support will help restore biodiverse ecosystems and re-connect habitat for wildlife, including many endangered species.

Your Milestone Forest will be legally protected for 100 years allowing it to grow into a self-sustaining ecosystem that will thrive beyond this century.

This is a meaningful way to honour a special person or important milestone.

Where your forest will be planted

Your Milestone Forest will be planted at a 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.

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

The impact of your Milestone Forest

Investing in a Milestone Forest is an opportunity to celebrate life events in an everlasting and sustainable way. Your support will provide 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.

Why we plant Milestone forests

We plant Milestone Forests to help you pay tribute to life’s special moments.

Greenfleet supporters have established Milestone Forests for a variety of heartfelt reasons:

  • wedding gift registries
  • significant birthday gifts
  • in memory of a loved one
  • celebrating new life. 

Read below how Baby Clancy's parents celebrated his birth with Clancy's Forest.

Baby Clancy's Forest

In 2022, parents Belinda and Emily celebrated the birth of their son 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, a nature lover already.

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