20 Million Trees

20 million trees will be planted by 2020 to deliver real environmental benefits at the local level.

What is the 20 Million Trees Programme?

The Australian Government will work with the community to plant 20 million trees by 2020, to re-establish green corridors and urban forests.

The Programme has four strategic objectives:

  • 20 million trees – 20 million trees and associated understorey planted by 2020.
  • Environmental conservation – support local environmental outcomes by improving the extent, connectivity and condition of native vegetation that supports native species
  • Community engagement – work cooperatively with the community
  • Carbon reduction – contribute to Australia reducing its greenhouse gas emissions.
