ForestLink – A reforestation initiative from Stroud Homes
When you build with Stroud Homes you could also be contributing to important reforestation projects planned for your area.
For every house we build Stroud Homes will contribute 15 trees to a local reforestation project. We do this by partnering with forestry professionals to identify environmentally relevant projects and then fund planting of native forests.
What projects is ForestLink involved in?
We work with forestry experts to identify suitable projects to become involved in. For example, in South East Queensland there is an effort to regenerate Brigalow forest in areas where Brigalow was once common.An example of a ForestLink project involves Stroud Homes partnering with Trees Land Carbon to deliver new plantings of Brigalow forest in the Scenic Rim region in South East Queensland.
We plant 15 trees for every house we build
ForestLink is funded directly from Stroud Homes contributions. For every house we build we plant 15 trees as well as contributing to the preparation of the planting site.

Photos from a planting at our Jimboomba Woods display where we planted up to 60 native trees and shrubs.
One of the species planted was Melaleuca Irbyana is very rare and only found in small pockets in the Scenic Rim region of Queensland.
More than just planting trees
The ForestLink reforestation projects that we undertake involve more than just planting trees. ForestLink contributions are also used to
- Control exotic weeds pre-plant
- Control grass and weeds around newly planted trees and shrubs
- Application of soil wetting agents
Please note that the ForestLink program does not plant trees on Stroud Homes customer’s land. Plantings take place on larger scale reforestation projects.
