Planting rainforest trees

Trees for the Evelyn and Atherton Tablelands

is a community-based organisation whose volunteers (working with local landowners and the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service) grow and plant rainforest trees native to the Wet Tropics. Since 1982 we have been working to restore landscape function in this part of Far North Queensland, Australia. Through our activities we hope to educate and inspire others.

TREAT acknowledges all Rainforest Aboriginal people as the traditional custodians of the Wet Tropics (World Heritage Area) and acknowledges their connection to this cultural landscape.





We pay our respect to their Elders Past, Present and Future.

Aboriginal cultural heritage of the Wet Tropics region belongs to Rainforest Aboriginal people. It is important that culturally significant places are appropriately managed, protected and presented with the guidance and involvement of Rainforest Aboriginal people. 


There are at least 20 Rainforest Aboriginal tribal groups — currently over 20,000 people — with ongoing traditional connections to land in the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. 


Many TREAT projects take place on Ngadjon-ji and (Wadjanbarra Tableland) Yidinji country.
