Thousands of landholders across South Australia with ElectraNet assets on their properties have the opportunity to save 75 per cent on the cost of native seedlings.
A new partnership between ElectraNet and Trees for Life will allow landholders to buy bulk seedlings for windbreaks, habitat for wildlife, shade, attracting pollinators, and to manage salinity and soil erosion.
Trees for Life Chief Executive Officer Natasha Davis says the partnership is a win-win for landholders and South Australian landscapes.
Trees for Life offers native species for 42 different zones throughout SA, ensuring seedlings are specifically suited to the different regions.
Participants can order materials to grow seedlings themselves or request assistance from one of Trees for Life’s volunteer growers to raise seedlings over summer ready for planting in autumn next year.
Landholders need to be current members of Trees for Life and can order up to 500 plants, stakes and tree guards under the subsidy. Orders are now open and can be made until 31 August 2019.
Membership of Trees for Life costs $25-$55 annually. To download an order form or join Trees for Life visit treesforlife.or.au/resources
