Free Tree Giveaway

Greater Sydney households are eligible for a free tree.

Update:

Thank you for your interest in the 2022 free tree giveaway. We’ve received an overwhelming response to applications for free trees in August and there is currently no more stock available.

The giveaway is expected to reopen next month.

If you’re planting a tree(s) outside of the giveaway, register it to make it count. Every tree planted gets us one step closer to one million trees by the end of 2022.

We have partnered with IndigiGrow to provide a selection of edible and non-edible native tree species to residents in Greater Sydney during winter. IndigiGrow is an Aboriginal owned not-for-profit nursery in La Perouse.

In August, we gave away up to 3 native edible trees to 1,000 households in our partnership with IndigiGrow.
