Plant a Tree is back! For the entire month of June, for every person you refer that receives the $5 referral bonus, we will also plant one new tree on your behalf!
Thanks to our Raiz community, we have so far planted 3,658 trees in Western Australia on our users’ behalf!
For a rough rule of thumb, it is estimated 10-15 trees will sequester 1 tonne of carbon over 30 years.
The trees, which are native to the region, will be planted in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor, located in Western Australia.
To do this we have partnered with Carbon Neutral, who by revegetating degraded farmlands, plan to eventually link small patches of remaining vegetation and 12 nature reserves to create a green corridor, a 200km long stretch of trees that will reconnect coastal and drier inland habitats.
So far, Carbon Neutral have planted 440,000 trees, restoring more than 300ha of cleared land.
Trees bring many valuable benefits to the environment. The trees that you help plant:
- sequester carbon
- help reduce soil salinity
- help combat wind and water erosion
- enhance biodiversity
- restore habitat for native animals
