Blisstil partners with Carbon Neutral Australia to plant trees in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity corridor in the aim of boosting biodiversity and reducing carbon emissions.
The Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor is a high impact reforestation project that simultaneously delivers environmental, economic, social and heritage co-benefits.
Mixed species indigenous to the region are grown on degraded land in the northern wheatbelt of Southwest Australia. Revegetating the landscape with native trees and shrubs encourages wildlife to return while at the same time removing carbon from the atmosphere.
Carbon Neutral's goal is to create a 200km long green corridor from inland all the way to the coast, reconnecting remnant vegetation with 12 nature reserves across a 10,000km2 area.
More than 90% of the current planting area was cleared during the 1900s to allow for the farming of crops and livestock. We work with landowners to restore the land in the Corridor that is no longer suitable for traditional agriculture. Improving the non-arable land in the region has a positive effect through reducing salinity and erosion.
The project began in 2008, and since then more than 30 million mixed native species of trees and shrubs have been planted across almost 14,000 hectares.
