In January and February, we are proud to support the One Tree Planted efforts in Australia to help restore areas affected by the fires.
Australia is currently experiencing one of the largest natural disasters in history. This year’s fire season has brought about unprecedented destruction as wildfires have spread across every Australian state, burning up nearly 6 million hectares (15 million acres) of bush as of January 2020. But the devastation witnessed in the state of New South Wales is nearly unfathomable – 3.6 million hectares (8.8 million acres) have been lost, over 1,500 homes destroyed or damaged, and 24 people have been killed. New South Wales is home to some of the most iconic of Australia’s wildlife – koalas, wombats, and kangaroos to name a few – and their habitat is rapidly declining.
At the moment, our amazing partners in Australia are focusing their attention on managing and mitigating the fires at hand, protecting people’s properties, and assessing the environmental and community impacts. However, in due time, they will need plenty of support to restore this landscape back to health. Once the fires have settled and the land is ready to take on new trees, our partners are forecasting to restore over 6 million trees across Australia in 2020.
While trees for this project will not go in the ground until the fires have ended and the soil repaired, by supporting this project now you are making sure our partners in Australia are ready to hit the ground running and repair this beautiful and iconic landscape.
Our partner has chosen trees that will bring the greatest overall benefit to the region. This includes various types of native trees and companion plants, depending on the specific needs of each section of habitat being restored across New South Wales and Australia.
Thank you for joining us in this restoration project! We will resume our partnership with One Tree Planted in California starting in March 2020.
California’s forests provide innumerable benefits, including clean water and air, recreation, timber, habitat, and beautiful scenery. Healthy forests also play an important role in addressing climate change. Five years of drought and a large-scale bark beetle infestation have seriously damaged California’s forests. 2017’s record-breaking wildfire season burned more than 1.3 million acres – an area the size of Delaware. Now, a record 129 million trees need to be restored in California. We at D3 Home we strive to do our part to give back to our precious planet earth. Especially now, as we hear stories of our clients, colleagues, family, and friends who have all been affected by the recent California wildfires, the call to help is sounding louder than ever.
Our products are made from natural products and want to help by rebuild California by planting trees for all purchases made In-Store and Online. To take action, we have partnered with One Tree Planted, a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to reforestation efforts across North & Latin America, Asia and Africa.
