Working with landowners to restore a landscape
As part of creating a sustainable future we carry out large-scale revegetation projects on rural farmland.
RESTORING YOUR LAND
Due to a strong demand from businesses wanting to offset their carbon emissions, Carbon Neutral is looking for land to revegetate with mixed native species.
How does it work?
To continue our revegetation project in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor of Western Australia we are looking to expand the area of our planting sites. We are currently interested in working with landowners with marginal agricultural land, including land that is at risk of going saline.
We work with landowners at every step of the restoration process to plan and establish plantings that are the most suitable for the site and needs of the owner.
Planting native species has a positive effect for rural land, it can reduce salinity, waterlogging and soil erosion while the trees themselves provide shade and shelter for livestock.
You will receive attractive financial incentives, help to sequester carbon from the atmosphere and restore your land.
How you will help
Remove greenhouses gas from the atmosphere.
Creation of habitats to encourage the return of native species.
Improve biodiversity with sustainable forest management.
Reduce salinity, improve soil and combat wind erosion.
What we’re looking for
We choose sites that have the ability to sequester carbon while improving and protecting the environment.
For sites to be eligible for our land restoration projects you will need:
- to be located in the midwest or northern wheatbelt of Western Australia
- an annual rainfall of 330mm
- be minimum planting area of 100 hectares
- land that has been cleared prior to 1990
- arable non-cropping sites that can be planted for carbon farming.
If you are a landowner, or a group of neighbouring landowners and would like to know how to get involved in the program we encourage you to get in touch requesting the FAQs or call Ray Wilson on 0423 519 006

Regenerating a landscape
Our reforestation project in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor is capturing carbon, it is also the largest project of its kind in Australia.
