The TREAT Environmental Benefit Fund (EBF) is an approved charitable fund. Donations over $2 are tax deductible.
The fund provides for various activities directly related to revegetation projects such as site maintenance, purchase of frost guards and irrigation, fencing and stock watering points.
Members can receive 10 free trees each year, after their first year of membership. They can also apply for up to 300 trees for private projects, after one year’s membership.
Suitable trees for the habitat will be chosen by nursery staff and the applicant needs to demonstrate that site preparation and maintenance have been considered. The applicant should attend a Planting Workshop prior to planting.
The TREAT auger can also be borrowed for these projects.
