RePlant Byron aims to plant 1.8 million trees in Byron Shire by 2025. That’s about 300,000 trees a year.
RePlant Byron will record and document the planting and preservation that has already happened Byron Shire.
We assist and actively encourage the planting and preservation of native vegetation by other groups and individuals.
RePlant Byron will create a model that can be replicated anywhere. We hope to lead by example.
Why plant trees at all?
We are RePlanting Byron Shire because trees have the ability to remove and store significant amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. Trees also provide shade, and help to make our air clean.
Carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, is a major contributor to global heating.
When will RePlant Byron start?
RePlant Byron has started! In June 2019 Zero Emissions Byron received a donation of $50,000. From this we created our model. The first planting is happening 26 October 2019.

So, think about this.
