The Forktree Project

Vision

Climate Change and Biodiversity Loss are the biggest threats facing us. The Forktree Project involves restoring and reforesting an area of degraded farmland to help combat these threats and act as a showcase for what is possible in terms of land regeneration and off-grid living.

Goals

The project involves restoring a 53 ha (133 acres) former pastoral property on the Fleurieu Peninsula of South Australia. The land currently has about 30-40 native trees on it but should have 30-40,000. Restoring the land will bring huge biodiversity benefits as well as sequestering tens of thousands of tonnes of carbon.

Specific Objectives

01. Protect biodiversity and combat climate change.

02. Showcase what can be done in terms of land regeneration and off-grid living.

03. Look at how the Australian Carbon Credit Units system can be made more accessible to landowners to encourage more land restoration.

04. Serve as an educational resource and encourage others to explore small scale land regeneration initiatives.
