Greening Australia is an environmental organization with a network of over 350 staff in 80 locations across Australia which "was formed in 1982 by the United National Association of Australia and the Nursery Industry Association of Australia, to mark the international Year of the Tree." [1]

According to their website they are "a solutions-driven organisation that is doing something practical about Australia’s environmental problems. We do much more than simply plant trees. Greening Australia tackles critical issues like salinity, declining water quality, soil degradation, climate change and biodiversity loss through an innovative blend of practical experience, science, community engagement and commitment. ... Greening Australia lives and works with people from remote, regional and metropolitan communities. As Australia’s premier advisers on vegetation management, Greening Australia is passionate about protecting and restoring the health, diversity and productivity of our unique landscapes." [2]
