Improving biodiversity in the Hunter since 1989

This project was proudly supported by The Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife

FNPW has assisted Trees in Newcastle to develop our infrastructure in order to increase our capacity to propagate and nurture tubestock for this purpose. TIN now has a new igloo, undercover potting area, and best of all, solar power for an automated irrigation system. A new large shadehouse with its own irrigation system has also been assembled by volunteers on site.

Trees in Newcastle has pledged 10,000 trees per year for 3 years to assist with environmental recovery in the Local Government Areas identified as affected by the 2019-202 Black Summer fires. These plants are grown from locally sourced seed stock, and nurtured in our nursery until they are ready for eligible landholders to pick up at a discounted cost of $1 plus GST for planting out.
