Over the last 10-15 years, hundreds of acres of land has been cleared (including the loss of thousands of trees) to accommodate additional housing. This has particularly affected the northern Gold Coast suburbs of Coomera and Pimpama
With the housing crisis in full swing, the purpose of clearing the land to build houses and accommodations serves many Australians. However, the loss of so many trees poses a threat to our native vegetation and can contribute to the increase in temperature. In fact, the mass removal of vegetation has created a heat island effect in these northern suburbs, increasing temperatures by 6 to 10 degrees above coastal suburbs.
To re-establish green corridors, urban forests and reduce rising temperatures, the 20 Million Trees Program has been initiated by the government. Frontier Tree Services supports the program by providing Gold Coast tree planting services and replanting to support sustainability.
What Is The 20 Million Trees Program?
As part of the National Landcare Programme, the 20 Million Trees Program aims to plant 20 million native tree species to help restore and protect the environment and contribute to more productive and sustainable communities.
Homeowners are encouraged to engage tree service providers to undertake revegetation or replanting native trees, which will help to develop more resilient landscapes, improve the extent, connectivity and condition of native vegetation, and provide habitats for threatened species and ecological communities. The program is also targeting a massive reduction in carbon emissions.
