About Tree Alliance

We must unite, for mutual benefit

By 2050, the world will need 60% more food, 50% more energy and 30% more water – all while reaching net zero emissions.

There’s no single path to success, but to improve our economic, social, political, climate, food, water and fuel security, we can plant trees.

And we need to plant them now.

In Australia alone, one billion additional trees need to be planted by 2030 to meet demand driven by the home building and renewables markets.

The land available for tree planting in Australia is located primarily on farms. This means farmers are in a unique position to bring about positive economic and ecological outcomes for themselves and society.

But they don’t need to go it alone. We must work together to significantly increase new forestry plantings in Tasmania and support our growing industry. Because investing in trees today will pay dividends for current and future generations.


Private Forests Tasmania’s Tree Alliance brings together landholders, individuals and organisations on the journey of planting trees on farms.

Our program supports farmers to establish and manage commercially viable trees in Tasmania’s agricultural landscape. We encourage collaboration, conversation and strategy towards our shared goals.

Together, we can meet the needs of the future. For the benefit of all.


Our treety: to grow our future economy and ecology through trees.
