Planting Trees for The Queen’s Jubilee program will provide grants between $2,500 and $20,000 to eligible groups and organisations for community-based tree planting events. The program intends to increase community awareness of this occasion, create a legacy of tree planting across the nation and increase and/or enhance the area of tree canopy

A wide range of groups and organisations are eligible to apply under the program, including community and environment groups, local government and schools. Each electorate has funding of up to $100,000 to allocate to a maximum of 10 projects.
