Tentsile Tree Tents' Activism in the Tasmanian Rainforest

Tentsile Tree Tents' Activism in the Tasmanian Rainforest

Earlier this year, the Big Canopy Campout saw hundreds of people and organisations take to the trees this September, sleeping out in forests around the globe to raise funds for vital conservation work. One such group is the Bob Brown Foundation, who got in touch with Tentsile to ask for some Tree Tents to help fight deforestation on the front line. Of course, we were more than happy to join their plight – saving trees is what we do best. Hear from Erik Hayward - CEO of the Bob Brown Foundation - as he explains what’s happening in the Tarkine Forests of Tasmania.

The Stories Behind the Stats: How Our Tree Planting Partners are Making a Difference! #BecomeOneOfTheMillion

We’ve set ourselves the challenge of planting ONE MILLION TREES worldwide in five years!

We’re almost at the end of the second year of this exciting challenge and thanks to your support and the incredibly hard work of our tree planting partners- an amazing 393,755 trees have been planted! One tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year. That means the trees you helped plant could absorb over 18 million pounds of CO2.

#BecomeOneOfTheMillion: Tentsile's Syd Joins The Big Canopy Campout...

Being able to join the remarkable team of people behind The Big Canopy Campout‘s historic inaugural event was an honour, and though in aid of a very serious cause, a lot of fun. 

For John and Olly, organisers behind the international event, all the persuading, promotion and planning was over, so the only thing left for me to do was embark on a weekend of adventure, and enjoy contributing to a very worthwhile project

#BecomeOneOfTheMillion - Who To Pick To Plant?

So it’s one thing saying we want to plant trees; it’s quite another actually doing it. Turns out, repopulating the planet with trees is not as straight forward as one initially thinks – even for people in the tree-loving business!
