Have you ever thought of becoming friends with a tree?

In the time since colonisation, most of our grand old trees have been destroyed.

And the Box-Ironbark trees of the Wellsford Forest are no exception: some 83 per cent of Box-Ironbark have been cleared through mining and logging.

Adding further insult to injury, what’s left is not safe. Instead of being protected in a national park as recommended, Wellsford Forest remains open for domestic firewood collection and mining works.

With local groups, VNPA has been out in the Wellsford, formally assessing and documenting the remaining big, old trees to better advocate for their protection.

Please help protect our last living giants by befriending Victoria’s remaining large old trees with a tax-deductible gift today.
