At felix mobile, we select reforestation projects for their social, community and environmental benefits, including here at home in Australia and overseas.
On average, rural Nepali people earn less than US $1 per day. This project will bring nearly eight months of employment to over 30 families with a five-times higher payment than regular income. This project will aim to restore 100 hectares of degraded habitat, benefiting endangered red pandas, the revival of at least 10 water holes for wildlife, creation of new habitats and the restoration of spring sheds providing water for local communities.
Working with volunteers, trees will be distributed and planted in the home of every newborn, or in their local area if they don’t have a backyard. The trees planted will help to increase canopy coverage to clean the air and reduce impact of extreme heat. Fruit trees in Bangladesh are also the main source of bird food and help to produce food for local communities.
Targeting land restoration in rural Panama, this project will involve local communities in planting mixed-species forests. The focus is on rehabilitating degraded land and establishing conservation corridors to address poverty, hunger, education, gender equality, climate action, and biodiversity conservation.

The Plateau wildfire near Nazko, British Columbia in 2017 burned 545,151 hectares, with approximately 30-40% of this area experiencing a destroying fire. This project will focus on planting tree seedlings to reforest previously forested lands that were severely impacted.
Trees donated: 83,000
The goal of this project is to protect and grow the local koala population in the Northern Rivers of NSW, creating a koala wildlife corridor. A linkage will be formed between Byron Bay/Bangalow, heading west towards Tenterfield, north to the QLD border and south towards Grafton. The project itself includes tree planting and habitat restoration and will include both the planting of koala food trees and local rainforest trees.

Located in the state of Pará in the Amazon, this project is focusing on recovering degraded areas in small and medium sized rural properties that focus on high productivity of cocoa. This project offers many benefits, including watershed restoration, climate stability, biodiversity and habitat benefits, as well as driving social and community impact.
Trees donated: 162,465
Located in the buffer zone of the protected Labanan Forest, this area is home to many wonderful animals including orangutans, hornbills, eagles, bobcats, clouded leopards and more. Native trees will be planted to expand the habitat here, as well as an agroforestry system which will provide long-term economic value for the community by harvesting fruit and other non-timber forest products. Planting will also stabilise soil in the Bawan Batu River catchment, improving water quality and reducing landslide risk.
The project will be supporting community nurseries in the Merasa Village and will collaborate with a government agricultural agency to deliver capacity-building training for running a nursery. This will ensure the local community is receiving the benefit from the restoration with the goal to inspire more local villages to get involved in restoration projects.

Ecological Restoration in Southwest Western Australia
Located in Southwest Western Australia, this project is called the Ecological Restoration Project and is working in one of the world’s top 25 biodiversity hotspots, with 50% endemism of plant species (found nowhere else on earth). Many of the species here hail from prehistoric times as the region has been unglaciated for more than 250 million years. The area itself has been historically over-cleared for agriculture, and as a result, the remaining ecosystems are fragmented and in need of expansion to support resilience for the future.
Revegetating Marna Banggara in South Australia
This project takes place on South Australia's York Peninsula, and will work closely with the Traditional Owners of the land, the Narungga people, and is aimed at focusing on restoring native vegetation and increasing landscape connectivity, while providing important habitat for numerous threatened species including the Southern Hairy Nosed Wombat.
Threatened Species Habitat Restoration in Western Australia
Aimed to create and enhance habitat for threatened species including the critically endangered western ringtail possum and the Carnaby's cockatoo. Plantings in riparian areas will also help to stabilise streambanks and reduce erosion. The planting in the Dumbleyung area will also help to address the spread of dryland salinity by reducing groundwater recharge at the same time as providing foraging habitat for Carnaby's cockatoos. The plantings at Margaret River, Kingston and Donnybrook will be undertaken by community volunteers which will help to engage locals in conservation initiatives while improving their understanding of the value of habitat and threatened species. The Dumbleyung plantings will be undertaken by farmers who own the land on which the tree species are being planted at.

The Plant Trees for Chimpanzee’s project in Uganda is setting out to help restore a huge area of chimpanzee habitat in the Albertine Rift region of Uganda. Donations here will go towards planting trees as part of a broad long-term and large-scale initiative that will connect forests for wildlife, establish tree nurseries, strengthen forest monitoring and law enforcement to prevent future deforestation while promoting agroforestry practices that integrate trees into farming systems and much more.

This impactful project in Bhutan will add ecological value to open, unused farmlands by planting high-value fruit trees, especially in the eastern and central regions of Bhutan where the poverty rate is high.
The reforestation approach will be focused on improving the landscape that’s deforested, degraded, and under-utilised. It will also create a bunch of additional benefits including improved food security by providing fruit and nuts to the local community, as well as clean water and carbon sequestration.
The type of trees that will be planted here include walnut, hazelnut, chestnut, cherry, plum, apple, peach, pear, avocado and mango trees.

Deforestation in Malawi is mainly caused by the need for wood for construction, production of charcoal and firewood for cooking, and this project will be focused on restoring 94 hectares of land in communities across Enyezini, Misuku, Kaswiti and Embangweni. These areas have been degraded or deforested and planting here helps to accelerate the re-establishment of healthy forests. Through reforestation, the canopy can be restored, ecosystems are made whole and biodiversity can thrive. Other benefits of this project include habitat for flora and fauna, prevention of flash floods and erosion, and riverbank stabilisation.

Project Plant for Punjab is helping plant thousands of trees in villages across 12 districts of the Punjab region of India. This initiative is seeking to plant one billion trees to boost its low green cover and restore ecological balance by planting Indigenous trees.
Our local partners through One Tree Planted do an amazing job at growing and nurturing the plant species before they are planted to ensure a high survival rate. They not only provide technical support to the village when getting the plants ready but also ensure they provide support for up to three years through watering, manure application and replanting if necessary.
This wonderful project took place in South-West of WA and is home to incredible national parks – a project we were so excited to contribute to in 2021.
Known for being a global biodiversity hotspot, this area suffered tremendous damage from decades of over-clearing for agriculture and bushfires throughout 2019-2020.
Through One Tree Planted, we planted thousands of trees to restore bushfire impacted areas while increasing wildlife habitat, engaging the Noongar Indigenous community who are extremely knowledgeable in the management of this land.
What’s incredible is that 50% of the plant species found in this region are not located anywhere else on our planet and are extremely unique. Restoring fire-damaged forests in South-West WA also improves watershed filtration and water quality for locals along the way.

If the Amazonian forests are the lungs of the planet, then the forests of the Andes are its heart, the very source of its watery circulation system. The forests of the high Andes capture then release rainfall, sending it in measured flow to the vast Amazon below.
This project we were proud to be a part of, focused on the Polylepis forests – a unique and rapidly disappearing ecosystem. Spanning seven South American countries, these forests can be found as high as 4500 metres, defining the tree line for the Andes range. Often found beneath glaciers, Polylepis forests have been reduced to 3-10% of their natural range.
Polylepis are keystone species in creating and supporting high Andean ecosystems, including wetlands. Many rare and endangered species – more than 22 species identified by IUCN as species of conservation concern – persist only in this increasingly fragmented oasis of trees. Culturally significant to high Andes indigenous peoples, Polylepis provide the overstory and main structure for forests that contain a diversity of plants valued by these communities as native foods and medicines.
