Will you help us protect legacy trees? 

Very few Victorian trees have survived both colonisation and decades of industrial logging. The ones that have play a vital role in the health of the forest.  

Legacy trees across our public estate are an important part of the web of life. They help ease climate impacts, hold soil together and regulate water tables. They’re also magnificent in their own right; ancient sculptures twisting their way out of the earth. They are clues to the landscapes that once were.  

But the way their value is decided doesn’t make a lot of sense. Poor management of our existing and future old trees means many are cut down when they shouldn’t be. It leaves a lot of Victoria’s most incredible living monuments unprotected. 

Please join us in our work to help protect our significant old trees.

There are so many ways we can better care for and manage our current and next generations of legacy trees. If we do, future Victorians will have the chance to stand in the belly of a living giant or watch Lace Monitors sun themselves in Ironbark hollows. 

Your tax-deductible donation today will help us protect our living legacies so they can be treasured for many more years to come.
