For every purchase over $250 we plant a tree

Our tree planting initiative is about establishing an easily recognisable link between the life-cycle of the tree into a customer's home. From the amount of C02 it once stored, and the need to replace our finite resources which support the lungs of our planet. 

To do so we have contracted Carbon Neutral to plant native trees on our and your behalf in WA for every sale over $250. Your tree has AUS Gold Standard Certification; fighting climate change by storing carbon, reducing salinity for farmers and promoting wildlife habitats with mixed vegetation plantings in the Australian Wheatbelt.

Golden Valley Tree Park is one of the largest Arboretums in the Southern hemisphere, well worth a look if you are in the area.

Following extensive deforestation in the area during the late 19th century, only a hand-full of these giants remain and it's not uncommon for these tree's to be chopped into firewood by unknowing farmers
