Planting and growing primary food and habitat trees from
acorns to seedlings to fully grown trees to eucalypt forests
with abundant leaves for koalas
Stage 1: To plant 40,000 food and habitat trees for koalas
WWS will plant the trees on its Sanctuary land and in other areas of the Northern Rivers Region of New South Wales and in South East Queensland where the koala population has been decimated and is in rapid decline.
Koalas are fussy eaters. The primary food trees that will be planted are:
- Forest Red Gum or Queensland Blue Gum (Eucalyptus tereticornis). Average carbon sequestration: 424 kilograms per annum. Longevity: about 30 years.
- Tallow Wood (Eucalyptus microcorys). Average carbon sequestration: 516 kilograms per annum. Longevity: about 40 years.
- Swamp Mahogony (Eucalyptus robusta). Average carbon sequestration: 378 kilograms per annum. Longevity: about 40 years.
- Small-fruited Grey Gum (Eucalyptus propinqua). Average carbon sequestration: 504 kilograms per annum. Longevity: about 40 years.
If we allow 400 kilograms per fully grown tree per annum that’s a total carbon sequestration of about 16,000 tonnes. The trees breathe carbon dioxide and through a process of photosynthesis extract and store the carbon and breathe out oxygen to purify our atmosphere.
Have a Tree Planted in Your Name.
For a donation of each $25, WWS will plant a tree in your name. You will receive a March of the Trees Certificate in your name with relevant details of the tree and its location. When trees are planted they are monitored and those that do not survive to maturity are replaced.

Offset your Carbon Emissions
Alternatively, you may elect to offset your annul carbon emissions and become 100% carbon footprint free. WWS will calculate your annual carbon emissions and the number of trees that it must plant to offset them. Each tree will be planted for a donation of $25. You may also offset the carbon emissions for your family or your business. WWS will do all the calculations for you. You may elect to have the trees planted over a period of time.
