Uncontrollable infernos that have torched about half a million hectares and displaced more than 100,000 people have made this the worst wildfire year yet for California. From such ashes, ecosystems usually bounce back, but a new study reveals this is no longer a guarantee. Thanks to climate change, areas ravaged by wildfires may never recover, wiping out entire ecological communities forever.

Wildfires are a natural part of many environments. They are nature’s way of clearing out the dead litter on forest floors. This allows important nutrients to return to the soil, enabling a new healthy beginning for plants and animals. Fires also play an important role in the reproduction of some plants. For example, seeds in some pinecones are sealed with a resin that melts in fires, releasing them and allowing new growth.

But fires are only good if they serve their specific purpose. If they burn too long, or the ground stays dry too long, ecosystems can’t recover. Given that climate change can lead to more fires and longer droughts, researchers have wondered how forests are coping, and whether they are getting a good start on their way to becoming a new generation of trees.

Since 1997, Greenfleet has planted over 9 million native trees creating more than 475 biodiverse forests in Australia, on behalf of thousands of individual and business supporters to sequester carbon emissions and protect our unique biodiversity. 

We are continuously seeking land for planting projects. Visit our Landowners section for more information if you would like Greenfleet forests planted on your property.

Greenfleet works with private landholders , local and state governments to restore our unique landscapes by revegetating cleared land with biodiverse, native forests. To date we have planted over 475 native forests in every state and territory of Australia - except Tasmania and Northern Territory - and in New Zealand. We have restored forests on our own properties, farms, National Parks, private blocks, Councils' parks and reserves, etc.

People of the tribal community residing in Mumbai's Aarey forests still struggle to gain visibility towards their social, economic and political issues in the budding metropolis. The 'people of the forest' as they rightfully call themselves so, are spread across 27 padas (hamlets) here. In the last two years, they have opened their homes to Mumbaikars, shown us their way of living, their cuisine and idea of coexisting with nature. The Aarey tribals have come a long way with the support of Mumbaikars, especially with initiatives such as the tribal lunch in the padas organised for the city folk, who are not acquainted with their way of life.

Rupali Mikre, from Khambacha Pada says, "I began by helping to prepare the food. Eventually Nazareth taught me to manage the car park for the people who come for lunch. I also take the participants around my pada for a tour.

For most participants visiting Aarey for the lunches, it has been their first time in the padas and interacting with the locals. Also, sitting down on the floor in the tribal mud houses and eating their lunch is a thrill for most people.
