Our ‘Arborists For Forests’ (AFF) Initiative provides an opportunity for arboriculture businesses to make a positive contribution to the local environment and their community, whilst improving their environmental sustainability through offsetting the removal of trees.
For every tree removed by our partnered arborist companies, a donation will be made to BCLN for a minimum of 2 indigenous plants to be planted in the Bass Coast (up to 10, depending on the size/age bracket of the tree removed). These indigenous plants will be grown by our nursery of volunteers and planted out by our Works Crew staff. Based on the average carbon sequestration rates for a tree on the Bass Coast, the plants will sequester roughly twice as much carbon as the tree that was removed over a period of 10 years.
These revegetation works will be completed on public land, to ensure that they can be accessed and appreciated by everyone.
Plantings will take place along creeks and rivers, on landslips to reduce erosion, in coastal areas and in other strategic biodiversity locations, including biolinks across our landscapes.
The initiative aims to provide peace of mind to both, the business and the client, by creating a more sustainable world for future generations.
Every dollar generated by the Works Crew and Nursery feed back into supporting the network as a non-profit organisation.
We are proud to announce that Bass Coast Tree Care are our first partners to sign on to the initiative, and they are highly motivated to get other companies on board.
